Tempe Empty Bowls


Proceeds from the two-day February event benefit Tempe Community Action Agency, www.tempeaction.org, and United Food Bank www.unitedfoodbank.org. Last year more than $20,000 was raised. Since the event started, more than $220,000 has been raised to feed the hungry in our community. At the event (www.facebook.com/tempeemptybowls and @tempeemptybowls on Instagram), a $10 purchases a bowl and a simple meal of soup and bread, symbolic of the caloric intake that must sustain many in our community for an entire day.

The 2019 Tempe Empty Bowls will be held two days from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Day 1: Friday, February 22 at 6th Street Park (just south of City Hall in Downtown Tempe)

Day 2: Saturday, February 23 in the Community Center Courtyard, 3500 S. Rural Rd., between Tempe Public Library and Vihel Center buildings on the southwest corner of Rural and Southern.

Hand-crafted bowls, planter pots, mugs, necklaces, platters and vases, made by potters at the City of Tempe Ceramics Program, local artists, and children ranging from elementary to high school students, will be available for purchase.
