Empty Bowls is a fundraising luncheon designed to raise awareness and funds to support our mission to end hunger. The empty bowl is a reminder of those who struggle with food insecurity.

Plan to support us on April 16, 2021 for our Empty Bowls Drive-Through event. During these uncertain times of COVID-19, we wanted to continue the tradition of one of our favorite events while keeping guests safe. Our 2021 Empty Bowls will transition to a drive-through model.

As a donor and Bowl Package purchaser, you will come to SHFBM’s Charlotte facility at 500-B Spratt Street to pick up your Bowl Package. Pick-up of Bowl Packages will occur on April 16, 2021.
