About Empty Bowls
Empty Bowls is a unique fundraiser where artists come together to craft and donate hundreds of bowls to be taken home by ticket holders. The goal is to raise awareness for hunger while also raising critical funds to provide food assistance to those struggling with hunger in our community.
With the price of an all-inclusive event ticket, guests can choose a beautiful bowl to take home as a reminder of all of the empty bowls in our community. A tasting of signature dishes will be served from over a dozen local restaurants.
The delicious food will be accompanied by live music from local musicians, an on site pottery demonstration, and more. There will be numerous art and gift items available in the silent auction thanks to the generosity of local donors. For the kids, there will be fun activities like face painting to enjoy.
Tickets are not available yet. Please check back soon!
Each ticket purchased for this event helps to support the mission of the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana. In the 12 parish region the Food Bank serves, over 69,000 people struggle with hunger. The Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana is the largest hunger relief organization in the region. They partner with over 60 nonprofits that operate food pantries or meal programs, forming a network that serves people facing hunger throughout Northeast Louisiana. In addition, the Food Bank operates three programs that directly provide food to those most vulnerable – our children and seniors.
Thanks to everyone who made Empty Bowls 2019 a huge success!
