Empty Bowls

The Northeast Iowa Peace and Justice Center is the sponsoring agency for the Empty Bowls project and will hold this year’s public event on Sunday, April 9 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Steyer Opera House in the Hotel Winneshiek in downtown Decorah.

For a $20 donation, attendees get to enjoy a simple meal and select and take home one of the many beautiful, handcrafted bowls made by area potters. Proceeds from Empty Bowls will go to local food pantries and other programs that alleviate hunger in the community.

Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.”
