Event Description

Over 3,000 bowls in the making for Empty Bowl Hawaii 2017
to benefit Aloha Harvest


On March 31st, 2017, Empty Bowl Hawaii will gather an expected crowd of 2,000 including over twenty of Hawaii’s top chefs, to celebrate Hawaii Potters Guild’s 50th Anniversary and raise  funds for Aloha Harvest. This biannual fundraiser began in 2009 under the leadership of Hawaii Potters Guild as part of an international effort to address hunger.  The 2017 event will be held for the first time at Pomaikai Ballrooms at Dole Cannery from 5:00-8:30pm.

After two years of preparation from the clay community; including community organizations, more than twenty schools, and hundreds of members of Hawaii Potters’ Guild, over 3,000 bowls are expected to be given away at the event. That equals over 4,500 pounds of reused clay.

All proceeds from Empty Bowl Hawaii will benefit Aloha Harvest.  Aloha Harvest is a non-profit organization that rescues quality, donated food and delivers it “free of charge” to social service agencies feeding the hungry in Hawai‘i.

Tickets as well as updates on confirmed chefs, entertainers and sponsor opportunities will be available at emptybowlhawaii.org beginning October 15, 2016.

Community Funds & Action!


From its earliest grantmaking, in 1972-3 into the 1990s, Hawaii People’s Fund supported community organizing in Honolulu’s Chinatown. The critical grassroots groups were Third Arm and People Against Chinatown Evictions (PACE).


Several continuous Hawaii People’s Fund constituents were part of these groups and one asked if we might help preserve more of the stories from this important period of strategic activism,


Hawaii People’s Fund worked with a UH student-intern in the spring/summer of 2016. Sonja Cookman put this article together. She met with about a dozen organizers from those days. She also scanned a number of original documents, organizational newsletters and media coverage. Hawaii People’s Fund was able to digitize a couple hundred old slides.


The original activists plan to come together to archive more of their memories. Hawaii People’s Fund hopes this article, the first source documents, and the ongoing work of the surviving organizers will help preserve the history and serve to inspire and inform continued struggles against evictions and gentrification and activism for access to health care, housing and dignity for all.
