Empty Bowls is a North American-wide project to aid the homeless. All of the proceeds go to Anishnawbe Health Toronto, a culture-based native centre committed to changing lives through traditional healing practices. Anishnawbe’s work with the homeless has evolved from early directions of crisis intervention, to their current efforts of working with those who seek to escape homelessness.
More than 400 bowls are donated by potters, potter’s guilds and students at schools teaching pottery, and delicious soups are prepared and ladled out by some of Ontario’s most eminent chefs.
Patrons line up in order to be first in line to choose their bowl, and have it filled with their choice of delicious soups. At the end of the event they take their bowls home with them to enjoy, knowing that all the money collected goes directly to Anishnawbe Health Toronto. Last year we were able to give over $15,000 to Anishnawbe to help them with their work with the homeless.
