Empty Bowls with Panera

Monday, Sep. 20 — Friday, Sep. 24
Online: September 20-23 | In person: September 24
Online and at Panera on Campbell

Empty bowls serve as a reminder of those struggling with hunger in southwest Missouri. All the funds raised from this year’s event will support the Weekend Backpack Program.

Purchase beautiful bowls made by local artists to provide meals for at-risk students. The first 250 donors will receive free soup and bread from Panera, and two lucky donors will be chosen to receive free bread or bagels for a year.

Questions? Contact Sarah Byrd at for more info or to donate bowls.
