Through your generosity at our 2017 event, we raised enough money to provide 685,000 meals to those in need in our community. 

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.

Congratulations to our 2017 Empty Bowl Award Recipients:

  • Mike Banks Reflection of the Heart Award: Phillip Sartain
  • Volunteer of the Year: Brady Taylor
  • Corporate Volunteer Group of the Year: Poly Enterprises
