Empty Bowls Project
Returning to our fundraising roots, the UCAN Food Bank will be hosting an Empty Bowls Project dinner on October 16th at 5:30 PM. Tickets are $25 in advance. Guests will select a bowl and will be served a meal of delicious soup and bread. At the end of the event, guests will be invited to take home their bowl as a reminder of how many bowls go empty in our community every day.
