Empty Bowls is River City Food Bank’s signature event that raises funds, friends and awareness for our ongoing fight against hunger in Sacramento County. This year on March 10 and 11, 2014, we will celebrate our 11th annual Empty Bowls!
Empty Bowls 2013 was attended by over 1,300 people and raised more than $100,000, 96% of which directly funds our food programs. This year we hope to raise over $125,000 to help meet the growing need in our community. The Monday evening supper and Tuesday luncheon will be held at the Convention Center in downtown Sacramento. Guests attending the Monday evening event will be treated to wine, appetizers, gourmet soup, bread and desserts and beverages from some of Sacramento’s finest restaurants. All attendees will select one of over 1,500 beautiful handmade bowls created by budding and professional artists, as well as local celebrities to take home with them as a reminder of the many in our community who are hungry and face an empty bowl each day.
