About Empty Bowls

The Empty Bowls Project was initiated by a Michigan art teacher in 1990 as a way to raise charitable funds for his community. His idea spread, and Empty Bowls events now take place across the United States and in at least a dozen other countries. Millions of dollars have been raised and donated to hunger-fighting organizations.

Our 2018 Fundraising Event was held at the Historic Post Office in Hampton.

In 1914, the post office was Hampton’s center for conveying the community’s everyday stories. Letters from all over the world passed through these doors. In 2014, a video production company was able to carry on the tradition by bringing real-life stories, produced at the Post Office, to people internationally. Now, the Historic Post Office continues to bring people together as a wedding and meeting venue and as a place for the community to gather by hosting things like the Empty Bowls Event.
