Empty Bowls 2020 Sponsorship Registration

Empty Bowls 2020: Tuesday, May 26, 11 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Embassy Suites, Lincoln

The Food Bank’s signature event welcomes more than 1,000 Food Bank supporters to enjoy soup from 15 vendors and to take home a handcrafted stoneware bowl from Down Under Pottery Studio. The “empty bowls” are a reminder of the many bowls we have filled, and the bowls we still need to fill to help 57,960 neighbors in Southeast Nebraska who struggle with food insecurity.
