2020 Empty Bowl Lunch

Event Information

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 typically 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 receive 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.

It’s true that the pandemic has caused many events to be postponed or canceled, but the EMPTY BOWL LUNCHEON will go on. It will look much different than those in the past, but the community tradition that supports feeding the hungry in our community will continue, as the purpose is the same. Scheduled for Tuesday, September 22, 2020, this year’s Virtual Empty Bowl will bring your company’s boxed lunches provided by Performance Food Service and hand-painted bowls directly to you. As part of your sponsorship package, you will be provided with a link that will grant you access to our program beginning at 11:45 a.m. that will celebrate how we as a community continue in “Feeding Hope Together”, recognize our volunteers, honor this year’s Mike Banks Reflections of the Heart recipient and as always conduct our signature live auction, where you can watch and bid with your colleagues from the comfort of your office or home.

Sponsorships start at $750 or individual tickets may be purchased for $30. Reserve your sponsorship or tickets today!
