Empty Bowls

Empty Bowls Fundraiser

The date for the 2021 Empty Bowls fundraiser has yet to be announced. 

Since its small beginnings in 1990, Empty Bowls has become an international grassroots project to raise funds for local food shelves. 

Attendees choose a bowl from among 1,000 bowls created by artists and students. The bowl will be a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community. Everyone will enjoy a bowl of soup and bread donated by our local restaurants, and enjoy local entertainment. There will be a silent auction where you can make a bid on a unique fine art bowl.

Please bring a free will donation to support the work of ICA Food Shelf and ResourceWest.
