Empty Bowl

Each year, hundreds join us to take a stand against hunger in our community at our only annual fundraiser – the Empty Bowl Luncheon. Our 2021 virtual event raised enough to provide 1,225,329 meals to those struggling with hunger in Hall, Lumpkin, Union, Forsyth, and Dawson counties. Along with lunch, each guest received a hand-painted bowl to take home as a reminder of the empty bowls we are working together to fill in our community and a packet of seeds to help them “grow the love” in their own home garden.

Every sponsorship, ticket purchase, donation, and auction bowl winning bid made an impact and helped us meet our goal of providing over ONE MILLION MEALS from Empty Bowl alone! If you missed a chance to be involved this year, we invite you to participate in our 2022 event or take advantage of the other variety of ways you can engage with us at the Food Bank!
