Austin Empty Bowl Project lets you select a ceramic bowl from the thousands donated by Austin area potters and pottery students. Choose from dozens of gourmet soups from Austin’s best chefs and restaurants, grab a roll, sit down and enjoy lunch while listening to live music by local Austin musicians. Take the bowl home with you to remind you that others have empty bowls. Bid on bowls signed by celebrities including the Dixie Chicks, Arlo Guthrie, Jacques Pepin and more, as well as special artist bowls.

The event will include music by Tom Meny, Idgy Vaughn, Jeff Plankenhorn, Chris Carroll, Adam Carroll, In the Pocket, and The Numbers Band featuring Jimmy Fenno.

All proceeds benefit the children’s programs of Central Texas Food Bank and Meals on Wheels Central Texas.
