Empty Bowls

Empty Bowls Tickets are SOLD OUT!

The Empty Bowls Luncheon welcomes more than 1,000 supporters to enjoy soup from 15 vendors and to take home a handcrafted stoneware bowl from Down Under Pottery Studio. These “empty bowls” are a reminder of the many bowls we have filled, and the bowls we still need to fill to help the 57,510 neighbors in Southeast Nebraska who struggle with food insecurity.

Our 20th Annual Empty Bowls Luncheon will take place on Tuesday, May 31, 2022, from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

The traditional luncheon will be held at Embassy Suites in downtown Lincoln.

The drive-thru style event will be held at the Lied Center for Performing Arts in downtown Lincoln.
