Tickets for the Empty Bowls event can be purchased for a $20 donation.  Empty Bowls is fundraiser designed to raise hunger awareness and to help those in need in our community. All proceeds will benefit the Food Bank of East Alabama.


Attendees of the Empty Bowls event will have an opportunity to select a unique, hand-made bowl made by a local artist and enjoy a bowl soup from area restaurants. The hand-made bowl can then be kept as a reminder of those in our community who face hunger every day.

The event will also feature live musical entertainment, a raffle that will feature handmade items by local and regional artists, and a brief presentation by representatives of the Food Bank of East Alabama.
