The 23rd Annual Dripping Springs Empty Bowls Project will be back in November! But with an exciting twist: due to COVID19, this year the Empty Bowls Project HOME EDITION will be presented virtually!

During the month of November, the Empty Bowls Project Home Edition will be brought to your personal device through a digital platform. Beginning November 1st, they will post a daily feature of recipes from many of their talented chefs who have donated delicious soups in past year s. The Home Edition will also highlight their creative potters, talented musicians and dedicated supporters

With grocery prices rising and unemployment soaring, Helping Hands clients have found it increasingly difficult to sustain their families. The Helping Hands food pantry helps our clients put meals on the table and offers financial assistance for utility bills, rent, and other expenses.

Since the pandemic began, Helping Hands has seen a 34% increase in expenses and a 50% increase in pounds of food distributed. These increases are related directly to a 187% growth in new households that access the food pantry and a 239% increase in new children who need additional aid during COVID-19.

The City of Dripping Springs is a co-sponsor of the 23rd Annual Empty Bowls Project HOME EDITION.

For more information about the HOME EDITION, please visit the Helping Hands website https://www.helpinghands-drippingsprings.org/empty-bowls-pr….


About Dripping Springs Helping Hands

Dripping Springs Helping Hands provides a food pantry for the North Hays County region and operates with an all-volunteer board and more than 100 people who give their time to help others. Many local businesses and churches host canned good drives throughout the year and bring donated food to the pantry. Area farmers are generous to bring fresh fruit produce so clients have choices of home-grown vegetables and fruit.


At Helping Hands, we are a 100% volunteer organization focused on one goal: to provide the community of Dripping Springs, Texas with a framework of compassionate care designed to assist neighbors in time of need, regardless of their age, sex, disability, race, color, creed, or national origin.

First created in the holiday season of 1986 as a result of local needs brought to the attention of the community, Helping Hands has grown to an organization of almost 100 volunteers and has become an integral part of the Dripping Springs community, reflecting the giving spirit of thousands of people who live and work here.
