Empty Bowls 2018
Join us on Saturday, January 27, 2018 from 11 a.m. till 2 p.m. for a family friendly lunch event and support the Food Bank’s fight against hunger in our community. Empty Bowls is a unique fundraising event where artists come together to craft and donate hundreds of bowls to be sold as part of this special event. The goal is to raise awareness for hunger while also raising critical funds to provide food assistance to those struggling with hunger locally.
With the price of an 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 from multiple local restaurants will be served, accompanied by music, activities and a silent auction. Ticket sales support the fight against hunger through the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana. In its first year, the 2017 Empty Bowls event sold out of bowl tickets and received wide support from the community. Click here for tickets and more information.
