NeighborImpact’s Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser

The Annual Empty Bowls event is one of NeighborImpact’s premier fundraisers. Attendees receive a beautifully handcrafted bowl made by local potters, as well as lunch consisting of a variety of soups or chili, bread, refreshments, and dessert. Attendees enjoy a relaxed dining experience at the COCC Campus Center that includes music by local artists.

Empty Bowls is an internationally recognized event that raises awareness of hunger and hunger-related issues.  Participants keep their handcrafted bowl as a reminder of the millions of bowls that remain empty each day around the world. Locally, funds raised from the event support NeighborImpact’s Food Bank, which distributes over three million pounds of food annually to 55 food sites throughout Central Oregon. Every month, over 25,000 persons receive food through those locations.

The event typically is scheduled for a Sunday in late October with three seating options: 12:00 p.m., 1:30 p.m. or 3:00 p.m. Guests also may purchase additional bowls at the event.
