Empty Bowls 2019
Friday, Sep. 27
4 p.m. — 8 p.m.
Join us for the sixth annual Empty Bowls event! Ozarks Food Harvest and Panera Bread are raising awareness of hunger while supporting The Food Bank’s feeding programs. To participate, stop by Panera on September 27 to make a donation and receive a ceramic or wooden bowl handcrafted by a local artist as well as a meal of soup and bread.
The empty bowls serve as a reminder of those struggling with hunger in southwest Missouri. All the money raised from this year’s event will support children, families and seniors in need.
