Gather at Oakton College's TenHoeve Center (DP campus) for the Empty Bowls event where you can choose from many handcrafted bowls generously donated by professional potters, local schools and others in the community. Afterward, enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread as a reminder of those in need worldwide. The bowl is yours to keep while supplies last. Admission is free. Donation for a bowl is $20.


The Central Road entrance will be closed on Dec. 2 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. for the Our Lady of Guadalupe celebration to allow for the equestrian riders' pilgrimage. Please use the Golf Road to enter the campus, including to attend the annual Empty Bowls fundraiser.


Empty Bowls is a nonprofit, global movement that has raised millions of dollars for food banks, soup kitchens, and other meal programs.


For any questions about the event, please contact (emptybowls@oakton.edu).
