Here’s a quick fact: 1 in every 6 people living in Northwest North Carolina struggles with hunger, while 1 in every 4 children goes without the essential nutrition they need to thrive. But we can all help. Join us on on Tuesday, April 17 for our dinner meal or Wednesday, April 18 for lunch. Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door. Price includes meal and a pottery bowl. Join us and bring your family and friends. We can fix the hunger problem in our area.

LUNCH OR (NEW!) DINNER - THIS YEAR YOU CAN CHOOSE

This year, for the first time, we are adding a dinner to our Empty Bowls event. The dinner will be held on April 17 from 4:00 pm-7:30 pm at Benton Convention Center. The dinner will be very much like our popular lunch event with a simple meal of soup and a handmade bowl. Many of our supporters have asked for this for years — and we’re excited that it’s happening in 2018.

CHEFS, ARTISTS AND OUR COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER

The Empty Bowls event brings together top local chefs and artists dedicated to fighting hunger in our community. Chefs prepare soup made with fresh, wholesome ingredients and local artists create beautiful, handmade bowls for each of our guests. We’re so thankful for all of the people, along with our sponsors, who make this event possible. If are a chef, artist or potential sponsor who would like to help, please reach out to us.

THE EMPTY BOWLS AUCTION - BID ON VACATIONS, TICKETS AND MORE

One of the most exciting additions to our Empty Bowls event this year is our auction on ReadySetAuction. You can bid on vacations, get tickets to shows, find one-of-a-kind items are more.
