Empty Bowls Project: Making an impact on hunger

Carson City Empty Bowls

Making a bowl for Carson City Empty Bowls

So my daughter has been participating in the Empty Bowls project here in our town. We actually have two Empty Bowls Projects, one in the county we live in and then another in the next town over.

My daughter’s Girl Scout Troop painted bowls for one and then actually made and painted bowls for the other.

If you don’t know what the Empty Bowls Project is, well in a nut shell it is an international movement to help end hunger. Empty Bowls allows participating individuals or groups to paint and/or create bowls which are donated to later be used in serving a simple meal with in at a fundraiser dinner.

If you are interested in learning more about Empty Bowls you can check out Douglas County Empty Bowls or Empty Bowls Carson City on Facebook.

I am so proud that we have been involved in this project. My daughter will come full circle when she will be attending the 2nd annual Douglas County Empty Bowls’ event on Sunday, October 4th. This particlular event’s proceeds will benefit the Carson Valley Community Food Closet here in the town we live in.
