22nd Annual Empty Bowls Luncheon

May 28, 2024



About the Event

The Empty Bowls Luncheon aims to help fight hunger in Southeast Nebraska by welcoming more than 1,000 supporters to enjoy soup from local vendors and 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 48,100 neighbors in Southeast Nebraska who are experiencing food insecurity.
