empty bowls, an international hunger relief effort, returns to Houston on May 14 after a two-year pandemic hiatus. The event, which will be held at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, 4848 Main, will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

More than 1,500 handcrafted bowls donated by local ceramicists, wood turners and artisans will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to the Houston Food Bank. To date, the event has raised $982,268 for the food bank.

The bowls are priced at $25 each (there are also larger bowls available at higher prices); for every dollar raised, the food bank is able to provide three meals to the hungry. Buying just one bowl can provide 75 meals for those in need.

Free entry. Attendees who purchase bowls will receive a free GoodPop candy bar.
