Austin Empty Bowl Project

  • Nov 24, 2013 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi everyone,

If you haven't attended this before, this is a wonderful Austin tradition that is in the 17th year--if I am in town for Thanksgiving I will be here--you purchase a hand made pottery bowl, local restaurants donate soup, always free music--proceeds go to Capitol Food bank--

Something from their web page--


The Austin Empty Bowl Project (AEBP) was the first of its kind in Texas, founded in 1997 by Kit Adams, the owner of ClayWays Pottery... Studio & Gallery. Each year, AEBP has grown in participation by both donors and attendees and, with the help of our generous community, we have raised more than $500,000! In 2011 AEBP became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and can now accept funds directly and those donations are tax deductible.

Potters from all over Central Texas donate bowls of all sizes, shapes, and colors. Thirty restaurants and bakeries donate delicious soups and breads, while musicians donate their time and talent to entertain us. Then, on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, friends and families come together to purchase a bowl for $20, have it filled with soup, and enjoy the music. The bowl is yours to keep, as a reminder of those whose bowls are empty. The proceeds go to the Capital Area Food Bank to help sponsor the Kids Cafe Program. Kids Cafe provides a safe, nurturing place where children receive a hot, nutritious dinner, as well as help with homework.

Hope to see you there

    What a wonderful event! We didn't see anyone from the Group (hard venue to meet at, as Wendy mentioned) but there were 100s of beautiful bowls, yummy soups, and great music. I was happy to see so many people there despite the frigid weather.

    Hi all! I won't be getting there until 12. I have meditation service to attend first. I'm bringing a girlfriend of mine with me. It sounds like it's going to be hard to find each other. If one of you sees me, say hi.

    Sorry for the late cancellation. It's been a difficult week and I am just not going to be able to make it. Have fun :)

    Have to un-commit, I may make it there but can't be sure so I don't want to hold up the group.

    HI everyone,

    I am NOT attending this event, and put on the comment section weeks ago--so--I realize its harder when I don't attend to get you all together--my suggestion is, meet at the time I have, which is 1030 at the front door, and get in line--there will be a line--if this is your first meetup ever, this might not be a good one hoping to find the group as there will be a lot of people there--

    It is a wonderful event, just doesn't work in my schedule this year
