Pay It Forward: Support Local Restaurants and Artists in Lieu of Empty Bowls

The Food Bank's annual Empty Bowls fundraiser was scheduled for Thursday, October 22  but sadly has been canceled due to the pandemic. 

Please support the restaurants that have given back to us all these years by dining in or ordering take out. Help them weather these challenging times until we can all safely gather again for our Empty Bowls fundraiser.

On our website, you'll also find a list of artists that have contributed bowls in the past. As we head into the holiday season, please consider purchasing their handmade items as gifts. 

A special thanks to our Empty Bowls sponsors, including Presenting Sponsor Citizens Bank, for honoring their commitment to support the Food Bank.
