Empty Bowls – Meridian
Get ready for our 25th annual Empty Bowls virtual event! Empty Bowls is an international project to fight hunger, personalized by artists and community members, who offer their handcrafted and hand-painted bowls throughout the year. The Idaho Foodbank’s Empty Bowls offers the opportunity to select a unique bowl from thousands. We encourage you to remember that not all our Idaho neighbors are able to meet the basic need of feeding their families. The funds raised by this event help to provide food assistance to those in need this winter holiday season. Bowls start at $15 and sales will open on November 25th at 8AM.
Each order will come in a reusable Albertsons shopping bag and will include a $5 Albertsons gift card (per bowl) as well as soup recipes to enjoy. If you would like to, you can donate your gift card(s) to a neighbor in need, just let us know when you pick up your order.
Bowl sales are open until Wednesday December 14th.
Bowls must be picked up by December 16th. Pick-up times are below:
Mon: 10 AM – 4 PM
Tue: 10 AM – 4 PM
Wed: 12 PM – 6 PM
Thur: 12 PM – 7 PM
Fri: 10 AM – 4 PM
