Thank you to our generous 2022 Empty Bowl Sponsors:

The Empty Bowl Dinner, held each October, is a family-friendly evening that brings together community members and supporters who choose a handmade ceramic bowl to keep and fill with soups donated from local restaurants. Guests can purchase items directly for youth on our Giving Board, from personal care items, to eyeglasses, textbooks, and much more.
