The Empty Bowl Project's Main Event, on November 4th, will bring families, friends, artists, restaurants, businesses and community members together for a fun afternoon.

Join our event and enjoy good soups, entertainment and a silent auction in a festive atmosphere for a common cause - eliminating empty bowls.

2018 painted bowls serve as an entrance ticket. In addition, a wide selection of painted bowls, many of which have been painted by local artists, will be available at the door for a $15 donation ($10/children over 5). You can also purchase a pre-paid ticket below.

The Empty Bowl Project is run completely by volunteers. All proceeds from sponsorships, donations, auction items and the sale of bowls go directly to Community Sharing Outreach Center.

The project seeks to raise awareness of food insecurity suffered by children, families and seniors in the Huron Valley School District.


Lyle and Denise Tyler brought the Empty Bowl Project to Community Sharing in 2015. Through their efforts, there have been three successful Empty Bowl Main Events, and many, many meals purchased for local families in need from sponsorships, silent auctions and bowl painting proceeds.
