Carleton Empty Bowls Virtual Event

May 7, 2020

For the past 16 years, Carleton Ceramics has hosted the annual Empty Bowls community meal on campus to raise awareness around hunger issues and funds for the CAC Food Shelf. With the covid-19 pandemic and a shelter-in-place order, that community gathering is just not possible, so Empty Bowls is going virtual for 2020! On Friday, May 15, please use an Empty Bowl from a previous event (or any other bowl!) and post a picture of you and your bowl on your Instagram page and tag @carletonceramics! Or post your picture to Facebook and tag the CCCE! Consider making a donation to the CAC Food Shelf or any local organization with a mission to fight hunger anytime during the week of May 11-16 in honor of the virtual event. A $20 donation is suggested, but any amount is much appreciated! Donate through Venmo @CarletonEmptyBowls,, or text EmptyBowls to 44321.
