Empty Bowls 2021 will be a socially-distanced, non-food event this year! What does that mean? Instead of gathering for a meal of soup, rolls, and dessert, you are invited to come to any or all of the Empty Bowls events to choose a hand-made pottery bowl and take home a packet of Soup Recipes! Each Empty Bowl event will be held outdoors in the parking lot of the venue with tables of bowls set out for you to browse. Make a donation (suggested donation is $10/person), choose a bowl, get your recipe book and head on home to make some soup!
We could have just skipped this year – serving food indoors for over 100 people at each event just isn’t safe right now – but our local food charities need our support more than ever! So we put our thinking caps on and came up with a novel way to continue with this beloved and much needed program. We hope to see you at EMPTY BOWLS 2021!
