What is Empty Bowls?


If you have not heard of Straford House of Blessing’s Empty Bowls before, it's our signature event.  The Empty Bowls event encourages people to help those who are struggling in Stratford, while at the same time, enjoying a night of locally prepared soups, stews, and artisan breads with the option of participating in a live art auction. The bowl goes home with each guest as a reminder of those less fortunate in our community.

Last year, we did held our event virtually and this year we are still figuring out the plan.  We know for sure that there will be bowls and auction items that we plan to display at Festival Marketplace.  The rest of the details are coming soon!

The Empty Bowls Project, is an international grassroots effort to raise both money and awareness in the fight to end hunger.

If you are an experienced artist, feel free to be as creative as you like.
