Empty Bowls 2019
November 29 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm MST
On the Friday after Thanksgiving, The Idaho Foodbank hosts Empty Bowls in downtown Boise on the Grove Plaza
Throughout the year, we collect handcrafted and hand-painted bowls from professional and amateur artisans, students and studios. The event offers the opportunity to select a unique bowl from thousands and enjoy a hot bowl of soup generously donated by one of several of our finest local restaurants. While you enjoy your meal, 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 helps to provide food assistance to those badly in need this winter.
There will be more than 2,000 bowls to choose from, and bowls start at $10.
We need bowls!
Visit any of our partners below and tell them you would like to paint a bowl for Empty Bowls. Bowls vary in price and each one donated to our event could help provide food for 50 meals to help serve hungry Idahoans. Schedule a bowl making party with your friends! For groups of 5 or more, please call ahead and make a reservation.
