Empty Bowls Tickets Live!

Our largest annual fundraiser brings together you, food, one-of-a-kind bowls, and the mission of working to end hunger in west central Wisconsin. This year we're mixing up the recipe once again to create an indoor/outdoor event at the food bank complete with food trucks, handcrafted bowls to browse through, a silent auction, and tours to learn about our mission and operations.

Empty Bowls is on Thursday, May 18 from 11 am-7 pm at Feed My People (2610 Alpine Road, Eau Claire). Invite your family, friends, and co-workers to come grab lunch or dinner with you while also helping the mission of ending hunger in west central Wisconsin. With every ticket purchase, enjoy a meal at any food truck on-site in our parking lot and then head into the food bank to pick out a special handcrafted bowl.

Get tickets. Tickets are $25 for a bowl and a meal, or $10 for a bowl only. 

New this year are onsite food trucks, including Big Papa BBQ, Live Great Food, Mi Mì Café, Smackdaddy's Gourmet Grub, and Ramone's Ice Cream. Each will have a signature dish that can be redeemed with an Empty Bowls ticket. Additional menu items are available with a direct purchase from the food truck. 

Once again, hundreds of beautiful bowls have been handcrafted and donated by local artists and students. Browse them all and select your very own ceramic or wooden creation to take home. 

An online silent auction will include everything from experience packages to artwork and everything in between. It will be available online the week of Empty Bowls and does not require a ticket purchase to participate. 

100% of ticket proceeds go to Feed My People. Last year, we raised enough money to fund the equivalent of 200,000 meals.
