Decorated Bowls to Benefit Loaves and Fishes
The Empty Bowls Project is an international program that aims to end hunger. It was started by John Hartom, a ceramics teacher from Detroit and his wife, Lisa Blackburn, in 1990. Hartom asked his students to make bowls for a luncheon that raised money for the needy. Empty Bowl events have since been held across the U.S. and in places like Canada, Germany and Hong Kong. New Milford’s event benefits Loaves and Fishes.
