Not only are the enjoying themselves, they're painting for a greater cause.
"People in the community, they get together and they have painting parties. And they paint and decorate the bowls. So they're all individual and unique just like the people painting them," says Angelia Bostick, Executive Director of Good Samaritan Ministries.
The bowls will be used at the non-profit's fundraiser "The Empty Bowl Project" later this month.
"We'll be serving a simple meal of soup, bread and butter. People will come and for a donation they get to select the hand painted bowl and have the meal," says Bostick.
But the bowl's meaning carries on long after the event is over.
"They take their bowl home to remind them of all the empty bowls that exist in our community and around the world," says Bostick.
So far the community support has been tremendous. They already have around a thousand bowls painted and people are still coming in every day to paint more bowls.
"As a matter of fact, the enthusiasm was so great, we've had to order more bowls," she explains.
The more bowls, the more meals they are able to provide to those in need.
"Everything we make at the door, 90% will stay here to benefit our hunger ministries which is our Food Pantry, Food for Thought that provides food for chronically hungry students over the weekend and The Deer Project," says Bostick.
All together, The Good Samaritan feeds hundreds of people every single month.
"The Empty Bowl Project" is just a reminder of what's out there.
"This day we just stop and pause and remember that there are people that might go to be hungry in our own community. It doesn't just happen in third world countries, it happens locally."
And that's where the change begins: at a local non-profit with bowls, paint and hope.
