Empty Bowls

Empty Bowls is an interdepartmental educational program that takes a stand against local food insecurity and hunger. Students, staff, and faculty are invited to paint ceramic bowls while learning more about UNCG food insecurity and the resources UNCG provides! These bowls are then sold in the following semester for $5, or used as part of our Empty Bowls Silent Auction to raise money for Spartan Open Pantry, a food pantry for UNCG students, faculty, and staff. 

Thank you to all who contributed to our Empty Bowls Painting Event on March 31st! Our Empty Bowls Sale will take place in the fall of 2021. See you then!
