Artists: Empty Bowls 2018 is Coming

May 29, 2018 in Get Involved

Ozarks Food Harvest is partnering with Panera Bread for Empty Bowls 2018. The annual event, set for Sept. 28, raises awareness of hunger in southwest Missouri.

With a donation to OFH, event-goers will receive a bowl of soup, a baguette and a handcrafted empty bowl to take home. The creations, ranging from pottery to carved wood, serve as a reminder of the thousands of “empty bowls” found on dinner tables across the Ozarks each night.

This event could not be successful without the help from community artists who are willing to donate bowls. All funds raised at Empty Bowls go directly to feeding families in the Ozarks. Can you help make the event a success this year?

Register a bowl donation by submitting your pledge by Aug. 31, 2018.

For questions, contact Community Engagement Coordinator Thomas Cunningham, or call (417) 865-3411, ext. 137. We would be happy to schedule a pickup!
