Empty Bowls 2022

Feed My People's largest annual fundraiser is back! For over 20 years, this event has brought together handcrafted bowls, supporters like you, and a determination to take a bite out of local hunger. Every ticket purchase goes directly towards groceries and services for children, seniors, and families who face food insecurity in west central Wisconsin. 

Reserve your bowl gift box today.

"One bowl may not seem like a lot, but when they're all stacked together, the impact is huge," shared Susie Haugley, communications specialist at Feed My People. Last year, enough funds for 400,000 meals was raised. 

Every bowl gift box includes a handcrafted bowl made by a local artist, two exclusive recipes, access to a Pablo Center cooking video featuring both recipes, and a locally sourced soup ingredient. Ticket packages range from $20-$40 and are available only while supplies last. 

Empty Bowls ticket holders may pick up their bowl gift boxes at Feed My People at our drive-thru. This year the pick up opportunity is one day only on March 2, open from 9 am-6 pm. Choose between a specially commissioned 40th anniversary bowl for $25 or receive a randomly selected ceramic or wooden bowl made by a local artist for $20. 

New this year is an option to pick out your own bowl for $40 on March 1 or 3. These exclusive tickets are very limited and include a tour of Feed My People and the opportunity to pack a few food bags for our Pop-Up events. One-hour time slots starting at 9 am and ending at 4 pm are available for up to 10 people per hour. 

An online silent auction featuring local art, experience packages, and more will go live on February 22 and close on March 4 at noon. It is open to anyone to bid.

Empty Bowls would not be possible without the valued support of our sponsors. Top sponsors this year include BMO Harris Bank, Pablo Center, Silver Spring Foods, Offering Hope Foundation, Market and Johnson, and Keith and Debby Brunett. View all our sponsors on the event page.
