75201Empty Bowls began in 1990 as a small fundraising project among Michigan high school students that has now grown into a worldwide fundraising event to help end hunger. Diners are able to enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread served in a decorative ceramic bowl that guests keep as a reminder of those who suffer from hunger.

The Dallas chapter of Empty Bowls was started by John Williams, potter and former owner of Trinity Ceramic Supply Inc., and his wife Darlene.
