Bowl of Rice parties were held throughout the United States between 1938 and 1941 in order to benefit Chinese civilians affected by the Second Sino-Japanese War. The fundraisers, which included dinners, concerts, and pageants, were held in 2000 cities, including New York City and San Francisco. Money raised at the events was used to provide food, medicine, and shelter for refugees in need.
