Empty Bowls, presented by Veridian Credit Union, is the Marion Arts Festival’s most beloved program. The nationally-recognized Marion Arts Festival is free, fun, and family-friendly.
The mission of Empty Bowls is to raise awareness about hunger in our community. Hundreds of students from area schools create ceramic bowls to be donated and then sold at the festival. Some bowls are created and donated by professional potters as well. The proceeds from the project will be donated to local food pantries.
Since the program started in 1996, more than $92,000 has been donated by the festival to area hunger relief agencies, each year helping to serve people needing assistance.

As a credit union, we’re organized differently than other financials. Veridian is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by our members. That means all net earnings are returned to members in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates, and low-to-no fees. Veridian is also governed by a volunteer board of directors who are elected by our members. Each member has one vote in the election for our board regardless of how much money that individual has on deposit.
