Eat Soup… Keep the Bowl… Feed the Hungry

Help feed local hungry citizens by purchasing a bowl of soup served in a handmade bowl for a $15. All of the bowls are made by volunteers in the community. The soup is donated by local restaurants. All proceeds go to a local charity that feeds the hungry. Keep the souvenir bowl as a reminder of helping others.

Hub City Empty Bowls is being headed by Jim Cullen, a local potter and pottery instructor at the Spartanburg Art Museum (SAM) Art School. HUB-BUB is partnering with Carolina Clay Artists, SAM’s Art School and Chapman Cultural Center in this project.
The goal of Empty Bowls is to raise money to help organizations fight hunger, to raise awareness about the issues of hunger and food security and to help bring about an attitude that will not allow hunger to exist.

For more information about Hub City Empty Bowls, please email HubCityEmptyBowls@gmail.com or call Jim Cullen at 320-5358.

The Empty Bowls Project, a grassroots movement to help end hunger, started in North Carolina. From its humble beginnings as a meal for the staff of one high school, Empty Bowls has spread across the United States and beyond and has raised tens of millions of dollars for anti-hunger organizations.
