Empty Bowls Events at Mesa Community College “Fighting Hunger One Bowl at a Time”
Take home a one-of-a-kind bowl and help feed the hungry for just a $10 donation. At MCC’s annual Empty Bowls events you can choose one of thousands of handcrafted bowls and dine on a simple meal of bread, soup and water 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. The savory soup is prepared by Pita Jungle, T.C. Eggingtons and Red, White & Brew. Silent auctions featuring ceramic work by some of the valley’s most talented artists will be held at mid-day events from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
