Artists & Bowls


The Empty Bowls Ceramic Gallery Exhibition will be a juried showcase held in conjunction with the Empty Bowls event. The exhibit will have an opening reception at the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU. Exhibition pieces will be available for public purchase with proceeds benefitting Empty Bowls, an event of the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank.


Businesses and individuals are encouraged and welcomed to participate in this event. Your sponsorship of Empty Bowls will assist in providing nourishment to the hungry in our community. 

Empty Bowls would not be possible without the tireless hours of devotion provided by the Midwestern State University Ceramics Department led by Steve Hilton. It is with deep gratitude that Empty Bowls acknowledges your leadership, efforts, and contributions.

Empty Bowls graciously thanks our sponsors. Their donations allow the WFAFB to continue efforts in feeding the hungry through charitable agencies. It is only through community collaboration and generous and faithful giving that this Mission is achieved. Thank you!


Be a part of Empty Bowls! Volunteers are needed in a multitude of capacities. No position is more important than another, and all are critical for the overall success of the event.

Volunteers are needed the day of the Empty Bowls event, as well as the day before the event. Volunteers will be contacted two weeks prior to the event to confirm their shift, time, and area assigned.

A mandatory volunteer training will be held the week before Empty Bowls. This training is necessary to ensure a streamlined process and to make sure all volunteer questions are answered. Volunteer credentials will be available for pick up at this training.

In order to maximize fundraising capacity, Empty Bowls is asking volunteers to purchase a ticket if you would like to select a bowl. Please make arrangements to obtain your bowl before/after your scheduled shift. If you choose not to purchase a bowl, we welcome you to partake of restaurant offerings as available at the close of the event.

Volunteers must be 18 years old.

To volunteer, please complete the Volunteer Agreement and return it to the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank.

Thank you for helping to make Empty Bowls a successful event and for your support of the initiative to help end hunger in Wichita and surrounding counties.
