Empty Bowl Project Feeds Hungry Kids in Texas

Ad Feedback

As many families gather around the table to celebrate Thanksgiving this week, one Texas group is urging people to remember those less fortunate.

The Empty Bowl Project in Austin, Texas, is fighting against childhood hunger using handmade ceramic bowls.
The bowls come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They're decorated by local students, artists and potters.

Many are also signed by stars like celebrity chef Paula Deen and comedian Joan Rivers.
For a $20 donation, people can pick out a bowl. The bowl is then filled with gourmet soup donated by a local chef.

"We do soup every year and really look forward to it," said local chef Hoover Alexander from Hoover's Cooking.

"It sets the tone for the holiday season," he explained. "It's a season for giving and sharing and it's a perfect venue for that."
Every $20 used to buy a bowl of soup buys 45 meals for a hungry child.
