Thanks to everyone who helped to make our 20th anniversary a success. Together we raised over $92,000 for hunger-relief programs in Larimer County. Save the date for February 15, 2018, for the next Empty Bowls and look for ticket information coming soon.

Event History

20 years ago, the Food Bank for Larimer County’s Empty Bowls fundraiser began in art class at Lopez Elementary School when the school’s art teacher inspired his students to create empty bowls to represent those who didn’t have enough to eat. Since then, area artists have worked together to support the event and the fight against hunger in the community. Empty Bowls has grown from offering five signature soups in 1998 to over twenty soups in 2016 and has raised $775,000 for the Food Bank’s hunger-relief programs.
