The 3rd Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser will be held on March 26, 2017,  in honor of Ceramics Professor Gary Erickson, the founding chair of the Macalester Empty Bowls Fundraiser and mentor to many members in the Macalester community interested in the arts.

This event is open to the public, where guests may choose from a large selection of handmade ceramic bowls to take home as an everyday reminder that someone’s bowl is always empty. Guests are served a simple meal of soup (made by MacFEAST and Mac and C.H.E.E.S.E), bread and cookies (donated by local bakeries).

Generous donations are strongly encouraged, as one hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit Second Harvest Heartland to help end hunger in our community. For every $5 donated at this event, Second Harvest Heartland will distribute 19 meals to those in need.

Please contact the following organizers with questions:

Katie Witzig, and Phuc Nguyen, Civic Engagement Center

This event is for: Alumni, Students, Staff, Faculty, Parents and Families and Public

Admission: Suggested donation of $10 for a handmade bowl and a meal
