NeighborImpact will be hosting the 16th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraising Event on November 12, 2017 at the Central Oregon Community College Campus Center.   Tickets are now on sale and attendees will receive a beautifully handcrafted bowl made by local potters as well as lunch consisting of soup or chili, bread, refreshments, and dessert.  Attendees will enjoy a relaxed dining experience and the music of local acoustic artists, Parlour.

Empty Bowls is an internationally recognized event that raises awareness of hunger and hunger-related issues.  Participants keep their handcrafted bowl as a reminder of the millions of bowls that remain empty each day around the world.  Locally, funds raised from the event support NeighborImpact’s Emergency Food Assistance program.  This program feeds approximately 22,000 each month and distributes about 2.6 million pounds of food locally each year.
