3rd Annual Empty Bowls – Saturday, January 26, 2019 from 11-1
at The Hub – 201 Washington St. in Downtown Monroe
Calling all artists!! We’re having our annual Empty Bowls Poster Contest. Winner gets $100 cash prize, and all entries receive tickets to the event. Click Here for Details.
The Food Bank’s 3rd Annual Empty Bowls event is shaping up to be the best yet! Join us for an afternoon of food, art and music to raise funds for our neighbors who face hunger.
Empty Bowls is a unique fundraising event where artists come together to craft and donate hundreds of bowls to be used to raise awareness for hunger while also raising critical funds to provide food assistance to those struggling with hunger locally. A tasting of signature dishes from multiple local restaurants will be served, accompanied by music, art, activities and a silent auction. With the price of a $40 event ticket, in addition to the food and entertainment, guests can choose a beautiful bowl to take home as a reminder of all of the empty bowls in our community. This year we will also have a $20 ticket for the event which includes everything but the bowl, as well as a $10 ticket for kids 12 and under (no bowl). Kids 5 and under will get in free.
This year’s food vendors include:
Grown and Grazed
The Fat Pelican
Good Earth Salad & Juice Bar
Health with Hope
For His Temple Foods
Willie’s Food Truck Park
Thurman’s Food Factory
Chef Pat Nolan
Taste of India
