Empty Bowls 2022

10:00 am

Join us for our Eleventh Annual Empty Bowls! Empty Bowls benefits families who are homeless or are facing homelessness. Following the tremendous success of last year's "Empty Bowls Goes Mobile," 5Cities Homeless Coalition is proud to celebrate a decade of helping local families.

Your donation helps our community. When you purchase a ticket to Empty Bowls, you get to pick out a hand-crafted bowl generously donated by a local artist, and receive a coupon for a free bowl of soup from a participating local restaurant. The cost of your ticket goes directly towards supporting the unhoused in our community!

Purchase your tickets today!

Similar to last year, we will be following precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We're dedicated to keeping everyone safe as we bring our community together.
