Empty Bowls Dinner 2023

The Dearborn Public Schools Art department hosted its 32nd annual Empty Bowls meal on Monday, Nov. 13, 2023.

For a minimum suggested $5 donation, guests select a one-of-a-kind handmade bowl and enjoy a serving of tasty soup and bread. Besides bowls, pen cups, paperweights and other handmade clay items may be available. The items are created by students in kindergarten through high school who attend Dearborn Public Schools and by district art teachers.

Donations will support Gleaners Food Bank and Blessings in a Backpack, local charities that help feed the hungry.

The annual Empty Bowls event is hosted by the Dearborn Public Schools Art Department and Park Place Banquets & Catering. Empty Bowls events are held around the world as part of a grassroots movement by artists and craftspeople to care for and feed the hungry in their communities. Other sponsors for this year’s event include Blick Art Materials, Motawi Tileworks, Massage and Rovin Ceramics.
