Empty Bowls

Empty Bowls

Each March SOME hosts two Empty Bowls soup suppers in collaboration with the Corcoran College of Art and Design and other area potters. Empty Bowls is an opportunity to raise awareness about the growing issue of hunger in Washington, DC and to provide meals for the District’s hungry and homeless.

Guests are invited to attend a simple soup supper where they may choose and take home a beautiful hand-crafted bowl that will serve as a reminder of those whose bowls are empty. Every time you take the "Empty Bowl" from your cupboard you will be reminded that someone's bowl is empty and that on this occasion you have helped to alleviate hunger.

All proceeds from the event will help SOME continue to provide more than 1,000 meals each day to hungry and homeless District residents.

If you would like additional information about Empty Bowls or are interested in donating hand-made bowls, please contact Ingrid Feigenbaum at 202.797.8806, ext. 1129 or at
