Empty Bowls Project Today at Convention Center

PADUCAH, KY - For yummy food and a good cause, the public is invited to the Empty Bowls Project today at the Julian Carroll Convention Center from 11:30 am to 2 pm. Proceeds benefit the Community Kitchen (whose volunteers served over 70,000 meals in 2017).

Organizer Michael Terra works throughout the year with the Paducah School of Art and Design, along with community residents, local artists and school children, to create nearly 1,700 ceramic bowls. These handmade bowls are used to serve the food, and Empty Bowls participants can take one home as a gift. Food is donated by over a dozen local restaurants. 

The Empty Bowls Project had its first event in Paducah in 2009 and has raised close to $150,000 for the Community Kitchen. Today organizers hope to raise another $20,000.

Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door during the event.
