Look At The Crowd

2017 was a record breaking year for Empty Bowls! Because of the generosity of our sponsors, donors, volunteers and event participants,

Empty Bowls 2017 raised nearly $19,000!

This is the most we’ve ever raised for PRISM and NEAR food shelves!

Close to 1,200 people attended the event on March 7, 2017!
Nearly 200 dedicated volunteers donated their time and talents.
We thank the many, many people it took to make this event so successful.
