Event Details

The Empty Bowls luncheon is being held on March 5, from 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the Whitewater Hall Lobby at Indiana University East.

Handmade bowls will be for sale for $10 each, cash or check only. Lunch included.

Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort created by The Imagine Render Group to fight hunger. The IU East Ceramics students, along with potters in the community, create handcrafted bowls. In addition, campus and community members helped glaze the fired bowls.  

All proceeds will be used to purchase food for The Pantry at IU East. The mission of The Pantry is to provide food and basic necessities to IU East students at no cost. In addition to helping alleviate hunger within our student community, The Pantry aims to decrease the impact and stigma that food insecurities have on the academic success of our students. Approximately 30-50 students visit The Pantry monthly and take the allowed 20 items each.

Luncheon guests are invited to select a handmade bowl which will be filled with their choice of delicious soup. We ask that you keep your bowl as a reminder that someone’s bowl is always empty.​ The event is open to the public.

Live Music will be provided by Tin Cup.
