Tempe Empty Bowls

Tempe Empty Bowls is a great way for people to help the needy in our community.

Tempe Empty BowlsThousands of Tempe-area elementary and high school area students, as well as local artists, create clay bowls and other pottery to help raise money for the hungry in our community as part of the Tempe Empty Bowls program. Proceeds benefit the feeding programs at the Tempe Community Action Agency and the United Food Bank.

At the event, $10 purchases a bowl and a simple meal of soup and bread, symbolic of the caloric intake that must sustain people in our community for an entire day. The soup for Tempe Empty Bowls will be provided by NCounter and Whole Foods Market!

The next Tempe Empty Bowls events will be held February 25th, 2023 from 10am – 2:00pm

On February 24th they will set up at 6th Street and Mill Avenue. The music entertainment will be provided by the wonderful Mr. Walt Richardson and the soup will be donated by NCounter.

On February 25th, they will set up at the Tempe Library Complex at the SW corner of Rural and Southern. The music will be provided by Randy Olson and Friends and the soup will come from Whole Foods.
