The Oxford Empty Bowls event is a benefit soup luncheon dedicated to hungry people in our community, held in conjunction with Miami University’s Hunger + Homelessness Awareness Week and the City of Oxford/Miami University’s Veterans Appreciation Day.

Purpose: To join other Empty Bowls projects worldwide to raise awareness and money to combat hunger. All proceeds will be donated to the Oxford Community Choice Pantry to support its efforts to provide food to local families in need.

Where: Oxford Community Arts Center, 10 S College Ave, Oxford, OH 45056, USA

How it Works: At the luncheon, guests choose from amongst a collection of beautiful bowls created, decorated and donated by Miami University and Talawanda students and Oxford-area potters. Their bowls are then filled with their choice of soups made by local cooks. Luncheon guests then keep their bowls to use or display at home and to serve as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. Homemade bread and desserts, and beverages donated by area businesses will also be served.

Cost: $10 adults; children 10 and under may eat for free (bowl not included).
