Fishes & Loaves Food Pantry, Inc. in Cashiers Empty Bowls

October 3rd, 2020 in Cashiers, NC

Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and was created by The Imagine Render Group. The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread.  In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.

Due to current health risks and economic conditions associated with COVID-19, ​we will not be serving food at this year's event.  We are asking community supporters to donate 1 grocery bag of non-perishable canned food items to the food pantry or $25 in exchange for a handcrafted bowl.
