Empty Bowls

Spring 2020



The Manhattan Nonviolence Initiative and the Manhattan Arts Center have teamed up to bring Empty Bowls back to Manhattan.
Empty Bowls is a fundraiser to fight hunger in MHK. All proceeds from the event will be donated locally to Common Table and Cats Cupboard. Local artists donate hand-made bowls for the event. Local restaurants donate soup. Community members buy the bowls and enjoy soup.
