The Empty Bowls dinner is a simple meal of soup, bread and dessert. The meager meal is symbolic of what it would be like to get your meal at a soup kitchen. With your $10 donation, you receive a handmade ceramic bowl to remind you of all the empty bowls in our community.

What Is Empty Bowls

Our Mission:

  • Raise awareness about food insecurity in Lawrence County.
  • Raise funds for the Lawrence County Summer Food Service program,  which provides free meals and activities for children during the summer months.
  • Encourage our community to experience creativity as an act of compassion to our neighbors.

Empty Bowls is made possible through donations by area businesses and individuals who donate money and products to the event. Because of their generosity, 100% of ticket sales are given to the Summer Food Service Program.
