Empty Bowls

Empty Bowls. Somewhere someone's bowl is empty.


Empty Bowls is one of the Food Bank's annual fundraisers where participants enjoy a lunch of soup, salad, sandwiches, and more. Each ticket includes lunch as well as a handcrafted bowl made by a local community member as a reminder that somewhere, someone's bowl is empty. For more information about joining the Empty Bowl Committee or becoming a sponsor, contact Jordan Griffin at 870-932-3663 or jgriffin@foodbankofnea.org.
