Making a difference by bringing people together, reaching out and feeding those in need.

What is empty bowls?

Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The basic concept is simple: potters, art educators, and others work hand in hand with a food pantry to educate and remember those who aren’t having their basic need of food met.

When will the fundraiser be?

The week of December 11-13th, Chapman University , Growl Juice Pub and You Are Special Food Pantry will be hosting Empty Bowls from 11:00am – 2:00pm in the Attallah Piazza , then in front of Growl Juice Pub Friday, December 12th  and Saturday December 13th, 11-2pm.

This collaboration has brought the students of Chapman University, Growl Juice Pub and the volunteers of YAS, a local food pantry, together to help our neighbors in need. We will be working together to raise awareness in our local community by raising funds to feed those in need.

What is our purpose?

Together we have a common purpose to learn about the hardship of food insecurity, the hunger and poverty that exists within our own affluent region, and ultimately to give back to the community.

These art students from Chapman University are donating time and their handmade bowls to raise money and awareness for those in their community who are hungry and hurting. We will have a simple meal of soup and bread for a donation of each bowl for approx $20 to $25 which will cover the costs of the bowls and the rest will be donated to the You Are Special Food Pantry in order to help feed those in need right in our own local area.

The YAS Food Pantry, Chapman University, Empty Bowls, and the Growl Juice Pub in collaboration are working together to make a dent in our community with regards to hunger and to know that we each individually and collectively can make a difference.
