Empty Bowls

On the second Saturday of October, Catholic Outreach hosts Empty events_emptybowls_pic1Bowls.

The concept of Empty Bowls was brought to our valley by the late Ginger Rice. Each year potters craft and donate soup bowls. Restaurants donate gourmet soups.

Patrons choose a bowl from the nearly 900 donated by local potters and enjoy a meal of soup and dessert. They then take their bowls home to place on a shelf, reminding them there are people who are hungry in our valley.

Friends of Catholic Outreach have sponsored Empty Bowls for the events_emptybowls_pic2past 15 years.

Empty Bowls is held at the Soup Kitchen, 245 S. 1st Street, between the hours of 11:00 A.M. and 1:30 P.M.
