Empty Bowls 2020

What Is Empty Bowls?

2020 marks the 17th annual Empty Bowls event. Empty Bowls, River City Food Bank’s largest fundraiser of the year, is a humble, community-based affair. The event draws nearly 1,300 diverse attendees, including local businesses, healthcare organizations, government officials and community leaders, to address our unified effort to reduce hunger in Sacramento County. The attendees gather to share soup provided by local restaurants and served by some of our most recognized community leaders. The event is a reminder of the men, women and children experiencing hunger among us. All attendees take home a local artist’s hand-crafted bowl, which represents a household struggling with hunger.
