Empty Bowls Events

At MCC's annual Empty Bowls events, you can choose one of thousands of handcrafted bowls and dine on a simple meal of bread and soup in observance of World Hunger Day. All proceeds go directly to the nonprofit Paz de Cristo Community Center, which provides anti-hunger and empowerment support for the East Valley's homeless, unemployed, working poor and their families. “During this past year, Paz de Cristo averaged 7,000 visits per month from those in need of food, clothing and other services,” said Paz de Cristo Director Arlen Westling.
