Empty Bowls remains a crucial part of Channel One’s work to increase food security for our friends and neighbors. The past year has introduced many obstacles in ensuring that people in our region do not go hungry. All of the funds raised from the 17th annual Empty Bowls will be put back into our community and will directly benefit those who are facing uncertainty during this unprecedented time.

Because of the pandemic, the Channel One planning committee is unsure what is on the horizon for October and what regulations will be in place for events at that time. No matter the circumstance, participants will still enjoy gourmet soups and bread from local restaurants as well as hand-painted bowls– as a reminder of those who may not know where their next meal will come from. Empty Bowls: To-Go will take place again this year on October 12th and 13th, 2021!
