Plates and Bowls

and getting stronger EVERY YEAR!

For the past 23 years, the Empty Bowls Project has brought together chefs, potters and musicians to host an event brimming with great food, fellowship and fun and in support of Helping Hands' mission to provide a framework of compassionate care to our neighbors in need.

This year, along with our Co-Sponsor, the City of Dripping Springs, we will present the Empty Bowls Project with a Twist due to Covid-19. While we will not have a seated event, guests can still enjoy selecting bowls and soups in "To Go Cups" while listening to our fabulous musicians. Mark your calendars and save the date for Sunday, November 7th from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm
