Empty Bowls Project fighting food insecurity

At least $60,000 is expected to be donated to fight food insecurity in Dripping Springs, thanks the Empty Bowl Project in partnership with Helping Hands.

For the 22nd year, the Empty Bowl fundraiser will bring the community together to donate $25 and choose their one of a kind artisan bowl, fill it with soup from more than 30 local restaurants.

On Nov. 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Dripping Springs Ranch Park and Event Center locals can enjoy a meal and live music to help provide food for those who can’t afford good nutrition.

Last year Helping Hands provided more than 175,000 pounds of food for people.

Helping Hands event organizer June Baumoel said she is excited that there will be 17 potters providing 1,200 bowls for the event.

“Guests coming to the Empty Bowls Project in Dripping Springs will have one of the most unique collections of bowls than in prior years. Our generous potters come from all over the Hill Country,” Baumoel said.
