Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. It was started in the USA by art teachers Lisa Blackburn and John Hartom. Empty Bowls is a happy lunch event that is established through donations given by potters and other craftspeople who make beautiful handcrafted bowls, supported by restaurants that donate delicious soups and bread.

Musical entertainment is also donated to the event by exceptional artists. In exchange for a cash donation (minimum €20), visitors are given a handmade bowl to keep as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. In addition, the visitors are invited to enjoy a soup lunch and entertainment in the beautiful Crypt of the Helsinki Dome. The donations to Empty Bowls Helsinki go to the Finnish UNICEF emergency fund to be used where most needed.
