Join us for our Tenth 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!
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.
Choose to participate on any of three separate days, at any of three separate locations (tickets valid on ANY of the following dates):
Saturday, Sept. 11 from 10am-1pm at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church (501 Fair Oaks Ave., Arroyo Grande)
Saturday, Sept. 18 from 10am-1pm at the Trilogy Monarch Activity Center (1645 Trilogy Parkway, Nipomo)
Saturday, Sept. 25 from 10am-1pm at New Life Community Church (990 James Way, Pismo Beach)
