We're social! Get connected with Hub City Empty Bowls on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Use #HubBowls2017 so we hear you loud and clear.
Sure, you get to make pottery bowls for free. And yes, you get unlimited soup, bread, tea, entertainment, and a bowl on Soup Day. But we gave TOTAL Ministries $33,000.00 in 2016! That's the real benefit!
We hold public bowl-making sessions throughout the summer, each leading up to the Soup Day fundraiser held at Chapman Cultural Center. It's a day of soup and fellowship, and one of Spartanburg's most successful fundraisers.
