About Our Auction
Every year since 1997 we have invited hundreds of people to pick out a bowl and enjoy lunch while listening to live music. This year we will return to an in person event where you can pick out your own bowl and choose your favorite soup! To allow more people to participate, the auction will remain online. In this auction you will find everything from soup bowls to teapots. Please bid generously. The need is greater than ever. ALL proceeds will benefit the children's programs of Central Texas Food Bank and Meals on Wheels Central Texas. Help us fight hunger!
About Austin Empty Bowl Project
The Austin Empty Bowl Project is an all volunteer nonprofit (501c3) organized by potters to fight hunger in Central Texas. Since 1997 AEBP has raised over $1,300,000 for the children's meal programs at the Central Texas Food Bank and Meals on Wheels Central Texas. At our annual event people are invited to pick out a ceramic bowl, choose from several delicious soups donated by some of the best Austin restaurants, listen to live music, and bid in a silent auction. After lunch our guests take their bowls home with them as a reminder that others less fortunate have "empty bowls." Please bid generously as the needs in our community are greater than ever. All proceeds will benefit Central Texas Food Bank and Meals on Wheels Central Texas.
