Carroll County Empty Bowls is an event that raises money for the Carroll County Soup kitchen. Because economic problems have affected so many, the Carroll County Soup kitchen has a greater need than ever.

About Empty Bowls: Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.
