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
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.
