Empty Bowls

“Fight hunger one bowl or cup at a time” by participating in our Upcoming Empty Bowls events

Over the past 14 years through the use of Empty Bowls funds we have been able to provide over 100,000 meals and raise more than $70,000 to help fight hunger  This program has given the opportunity for over 700 volunteers and donors to participate annually. Empty Bowl and Empty Cup Benefits has fostered a compassionate awareness for those in need.  An opportunity to be a part of a solution and change the lives of not only the receiver but the giver.
