Empty Bowl 2013
Mar 10, 2013 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Augusta Jewish Community Center - 898 Weinberger Way • Evans, Georgia • 308
The 12th Annual Empty Bowl is a joint fundraiser for both the Golden Harvest Food Bank and the Augusta Jewish Community Center!
The original EMPTY BOWL event served lunch guests a simple meal of soup and bread in a beautifully hand-crafted ceramic bowl made by local students and artists. The guests would then keep the bowl as a reminder of hunger in the world... humble beginnings have grown to a community event helping many each year. This year we celebrate 12 years.
