Striving to Eliminate Hunger

Talbot County Empty Bowls is an independent, volunteer organization that strives to eliminate hunger insecurity “one bowl at a time” and raise awareness of this serious issue. During their annual event, 375 people purchase a $20 ticket and receive soup, bread, and a cookie. They take the “empty bowl” home to remind them “of those for whom the next meal is not a given.” The bowls are donated by painters and high school students. Leftover bowls are sold at the Easton Farmers’ Market to raise funds and awareness. All proceeds are donated to food pantries supported by ten Talbot County organizations. Qlarant Foundation’s gift goes to general program support.
