2020 Empty Bowls Auction Hosted By The Potters' Guild of Las Cruces

The items on this auction are handcrafted by local artists and 100% of the proceeds go to El Caldito, a Las Cruces soup kitchen. Empty Bowls is an international effort by potters to raise awareness of world hunger, raise as much money as possible for local food banks and soup kitchens, and to create lasting social change through the arts.  It is coordinated around World Food Day, October 16th.

Pickup for this event will be October 23rd and 24th. Pickup location and details will be provided to the winning bidders by email.

Empty Bowls was begun at a high school in Michigan in 1990.  Students made bowls and soup, and had a sale with the proceeds going to a local food bank. Empty Bowls is now an international event coordinated by potters to raise awareness of world hunger, raise as much money as possible for local food banks and soup kitchens, and to create lasting social change through the arts. The Potters’ Guild of Las Cruces began Empty Bowls in 1993 and was the first in New Mexico. 100% of the proceeds from this auction go to our local soup kitchen, El Caldito.
