The Austin Empty Bowl Project
The Austin Empty Bowl Project (AEBP) celebrates its 17th year of fighting hunger in Central Texas on Sunday, November 24 at the Marchesa Hall and Theatre.
For a $20 donation, members of the community are invited to select a locally crafted bowl and enjoy gourmet soups and fresh baked bread while listening to talent from Austin musicians. All proceeds of the event benefit Kids Café, a partner of the Capital Area Food Bank, and Meals for Kids, part of Meals on Wheels and More. After the event, bowls may be taken home as year-round reminders of hunger in Central Texas.
Restaurants participating in the event include Mandola’s Italian Market, Hoover’s Cooking, Magnolia Cafe, Guero’s Taco Bar, The Soup Peddler, Foreign & Domestic, Whole Foods Market and many more. Musical guests include singer and instrumentalist Brennen Leigh, songwriter and guitarist Michael O’Connor and songstress Elizabeth Willis, among others.
