GMFB's Annual Empty Bowl Lunch

GMFB's Annual Empty Bowl Lunch

Georgia Mountain Food Bank's Annual Empty Bowl Lunch is a fundraising event where community members can enjoy a great lunch while supporting our cause. The event includes several meal options donated by our corporate sponsors, a silent auction, and a presentation regarding the impact that GMFB is making across North Georgia. Along with a tasty lunch, guests will take home a hand-painted bowl as a thank you, and as a reminder of our goal to eliminate empty bowls and empty stomachs in our communities. These beautiful and unique bowls are made available through community donations. The money raised at the Empty Bowl Lunch supports our programs throughout the year.

How Can You Help?

Reserve Tickets

A $25 donation provides a delicious lunch and a painted bowl to take home as a momento of our event. Every donation helps, especially since $25 allows us to provide more than 125 meals to those in need across our service area!

Buy a Table

We want you and your business to have the opportunity to reserve a table at our lunch, to invite friends to attend the event with you, and to learn more about our cause. Each table of eight will be reserved with your name (or that of your business), so that you can easily find your seats.

Be a Sponsor

Fulfilling our mission would not be possible without impactful sponsors. Empty Bowl sponsor donations will be used throughout the year to help support our many programs that aim to eliminate hunger in our community.

Donate / Paint a Bowl

Each attendee of our Empty Bowl Luncheon will receive a hand painted bowl, to remind them of the empty bowls still left to fill in our five county service area.  For more information about hosting a bowl painting party, please contact Phil or or see the flyer below.
