Empty Bowl is an event where the community gathers to share a simple meal and take home a beautiful handmade bowl. But in the bigger picture proceeds from the event allows Hospitality House to offer jobs training and life skills to their clients.

Robinson says often, getting the homeless into jobs leads to being able to afford their own home.
