Empty Bowls is a global movement of artists who come together to address the issue of hunger through local events that raise awareness and funds for hunger relief organizations in the community.

How can an empty bowl feed a hungry person?

Come for lunch on November 3rd and we’ll show you!

Open Table is thrilled to again partner with Newbury Court and The Umbrella Arts for Empty Bowls 2019! Ceramics artists from Newbury Court and the Umbrella are making 400 beautiful bowls. Come for lunch, view the collection, and take your favorite(s) home!

100% of the donations benefit Open Table food relief programs, making a direct impact on some of our neighbors.

So join us for this fun event and you’ll have done something good for people who need your help!

  3. Select one of the bowls to take home!
  4. Can’t chose just one? Make additional donations and take home additional bowls.
  5. Bid on other beautiful items in the silent auction.
