star noodle’s 2nd annual empty bowl project

EmptyBowlProjectThe 2nd Annual Empty Bowl Project will be held on April 13, 2013, from 5:30pm-8pm at Star Noodle (286 Kupuohi Street in the Lahaina Business Park).  Star Noodle and the Maui Organization for the Ceramic Arts (MOCA) came together to bring you inspired cuisine, outstanding art and great entertainment for a very worthy cause, the Maui Food Bank and Hale Mahaolu.

This year, ceramic artists from around Maui have come together and have created over 300 hand crafted ceramic bowls to be sold for a $25 donation at the event.  The bowl you purchase is a keepsake to remind you of all the “empty bowls” in the world, proceeds collected from the bowl purchase will be donated to the Maui Food Bank and Hale Mahaolu.  The donation will also include a visit to a special Empty Bowl Project “Noodle Bar” created by “Top Chef” finalist and Award Winning Chef, Sheldon Simeon, of Star Noodle.  At the “Noodle Bar” tent you will be able to create your own Ramen or Organic Soba with a variety of garnishings.

The street fair setting will take place under the stars at Star Noodle with live entertainment throughout the evening.   In addition to the “Noodle Bar” station, SCRIPS will be available for food tents featuring Star Noodle favorites like Garlic Noodles, Nori Chicken, Miso Salmon, Yakitori Sticks (Chicken or Beef), Hapa Ramen, Star Udon, Soba Salad, Pahole Salad and special Star Desserts.  Signature Star cocktails, wines, beers and sakes will also be available for purchase.

In 2012, the 1st Annual Empty Bowl Project donated $5,000 to the Maui Food Bank and another $2,000 for the Lahainaluna Ladies Basketball team.  Over 200 bowls were made and it was sold out in 45 minutes!

Empty Bowl Project is an international grassroots project to help fight hunger.  Events have taken place across the United States and in at least a dozen other countries.  Millions of dollars have been raised and donated to hunger-fighting organizations. For more information please visit:
