Help End Hunger in the Brazos Valley with Empty Bowls, Jr.
Information Provided by The Arts Council
The Arts Council and Allen Honda invite the community to join us for the 7th annual Empty Bowls, Jr. fundraiser on Saturday, February 29 from 11am-1:30pm at Allen Honda, located at 2450 Earl Rudder Fwy S. in College Station.
This year, students and art educators from more than 20 Brazos Valley schools have created hundreds of handmade, artistic bowls to donate for this event with the purpose of “kids helping kids.” A donation of $10 is requested for each unique bowl, with event proceeds benefiting local student food pantries and the youth programs of The Arts Council.
Individuals making donations for bowls will be served a simple and delicious meal of soup and bread, generously donated by participating restaurants in the Bryan-College Station area, as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community. Stop by, pick out a bowl, make a donation and enjoy signature soups from Amico Nave Ristorante, Buppy’s Catering, Caffé Capri, Casa Rodriguez Mexican Restaurant, C&J Barbeque, J. Cody’s Steaks & Barbeque, The Kyle House, Urban Table, The Village Cafe and 3rd on Main. In addition, choirs, bands and orchestras from a number of the schools will be on hand to provide live musical entertainment.
The Arts Council extends a special thanks to Allen Honda for hosting this year’s event and to all participating students, teachers, restaurants, and Bryan Broadcasting who help make this event possible. Together, we can end hunger in the Brazos Valley! So bring your family, friends, and neighbors to this amazing event that helps fund in-school food pantries every year.

About The Arts Council
For 50 years The Arts Council has served the community with one driving mission: to make the arts accessible to all residents and visitors of the Brazos Valley through funding, promotion, advocacy, professional development and partnership building programs. The Arts Council is focused on providing leadership by maintaining and strengthening an arts and culture–friendly community, making the quality of life in the Brazos Valley the best that the state has to offer.
The Arts Council of Brazos Valley, a non-profit organization, was chartered in 1970 by a group of visionary local arts patrons with the purpose of establishing a leadership role in organizing local arts advocacy efforts and fostering a true community for the arts. Fifty years later, The Arts Council has grown to serve the 5,000 square mile Brazos Valley region and, since 2008, has provided over $4.5 million dollars in direct funding support to arts organizations throughout the Brazos Valley. Governed by a board of community leaders, The Arts Council continues to faithfully serve as the lead advocate for all arts, culture and heritage efforts in Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Leon, Madison, Robertson, and Washington counties by providing innovative and impactful artistic opportunities to residents and visitors of the region. The Arts Council is dedicated to ensuring that the arts remain a vital part of the Brazos Valley landscape, connecting people with the greatest achievements of the human experience, past, present and future.
