Did you know that more Montgomery County residents are facing food insecurity than at the height of the pandemic? According to a recent article in Bethesda Magazine, many residents are facing a “food cliff” due to higher food, housing, and childcare costs, along with a reduction in federal SNAP benefits.

 

To help our neighbors in need, VisArts’ Center for Craft Studies presents Empty Bowls, an international grassroots effort by artists, arts organizations, and their supporters to fight hunger in our community.

 

VisArts ceramics students and faculty, along with members of the Richard Montgomery High School ceramics community, create the hand-built or wheel-thrown bowls with clay, glazes and firing donated by VisArts.

 

Event proceeds will support Stepping Stones Shelter, a Rockville nonprofit organization that provides emergency food and shelter to Montgomery County families experiencing homelessness.

 

*$25 tickets include a ceramic bowl, appetizers, and drinks.
