UPDATE: In an effort to slow down the transmission of the omicron variant of COVID-19, the City of Burien announced Thursday (Jan. 6, 2022) that it will be postponing the Empty Bowls in-person fundraiser event that was to happen at Moshier Art Center the weekend of Jan. 29-30.

As we previously reported, the city also closed all its buildings and facilities, including the Moshier Art Center, to the public through Jan. 31, 2022.

Organizers hope to announce a new date in early February.

Empty Bowls events can be found around the country raising money to combat food insecurity. Moshier Art Center potters have donated bowls to be gifted with your donation.

All are invited to stop by the Burien Winter Market to donate, pick out a beautiful bowl, and participate in a fun raffle. Minimum donation of $20. The Empty Bowls booth at the Burien Winter Market will still be open from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Thursdays, from Jan. 13-27 at Burien Town Square.

Unable to make it in-person? Make a donation online!

All proceeds benefit the Highline Area Food Bank and White Center Food Bank.

You can also make donations through the event website.
