Clay Art Center is helping raise awareness about food insecurity and hunger in Westchester during our biennial Empty Bowls fundraiser. For more than 20 years Clay Art Center has mobilized hundreds of community members and artists to create thousands of handmade ceramic bowls in partnership with the Rye Presbyterian Church. Join us at the Empty Bowls fundraiser held at Rye Presbyterian Church on May 22, at 11am to purchase these beautifully crafted bowls made by more than 50 Clay Art Center artists and students. Together, with Rye Presbyterian Church and a host of volunteers, we have raised over $75,000 in the fight to end hunger in Westchester County.

Clay Art Center Executive Director, Emily Peck shares, “We are proud to participate in Empty Bowls as our way of giving back to the Port Chester Community by raising money to support two great organizations, the Carver Center and Meals on Main Street. Please join us by purchasing a handcrafted bowl and help families in need in Port Chester.”
As part of Clay Art Center’s partnership with Rye Presbyterian Church for this community service, Clay Art Center provides the church’s youth group with a free workshop, where the children have the opportunity to make bowls that will be offered up for sale at the fundraiser. You can find these alongside the handmade bowls by CAC’s artists and students. The youth group also helps run the event by creating the signs, helping to set up, and collecting the money for the bowl sales.
Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to raise both money and awareness in the fight to end hunger. For more information please visit www.emptybowls.net.
