Help fight local hunger with us! This year's Empty Bowls fundraiser will be a week-long opportunity (March 1-6) to come to Feed My People and pick up a one-of-a-kind gift bag without ever leaving your vehicle.
Each gift bag includes a handcrafted bowl, local recipes, and coupons to restaurants who typically supply the meal for Empty Bowls. Additionally, you will gain access to an online silent auction. Bid on items ranging from experience packages to pieces made by local artists.
Purchase tickets here. Pickup times will be emailed with your ticket receipt. A traditional Gift Bag is $20 and contains a randomly selected handcrafted bowl made by a local artist or student. Signature Gift Bags are $25 and features a special bowl designed by Scheelhouse Pottery. Supporters also have the option of purchasing a Bowl with a Bow for $10 that will go directly to someone in need as a gift.
Empty Bowls owes its success to our generous sponsors and community supporters. Platinum sponsors ($2,500+) this year include Heidi Atkins and Jerry Shea, Baird, BMO Harris Bank, Keith and Debby Brunett, Market & Johnson, Mid-state Trucking, Northwestern Bank, OakLeaf Surgical Hospital, Offering Hope Foundation, John and Tami Satre, Gordon and Dr. Rita Simon, Team Tiry, and Webb Stifel Investment Group.
