Celebrate our 50th birthday at our annual Empty Bowls event!
2018 marks our 15th annual Empty Bowls event. Empty Bowls, River City Food Bank’s largest fundraiser of the year, is a humble, community-based affair.
Hundreds gather to share soup provided by the generosity of local restaurants and served by some of our most recognized community leaders. The event is also a reminder of the hungry among us. All participants take home a local artist’s hand crafted bowl.
Each bowl represents a family, a child, a senior, a student, a person in between addresses, someone struggling with illness, or someone who feels helpless, hopeless and hungry.
