Empty Bowls

Feeding Hungry People One Bowl at a Time

Empty BowlsBrescia University partners with Empty Bowls of Owensboro to assist in the creation of the hundreds of handmade ceramic bowls used to feed those who attend this annual fundraiser.

This year’s event takes place April 24 at 6:00 pm in the Saints Joseph and Paul Catholic Church Parish Hall.  Each ticket is a $15 donation, which ensures you a bowl at the event. When you arrive, you will hand in your ticket and then pick out your bowl before receiving a delicious meal of donated soup, bread and dessert.  All proceeds from the dinner go to a deserving soup kitchen or food pantry.

Last year Rushing Wind Church of God received more than $6,600.  Pastor David Tucker will give a presentation at this year’s event sharing how they used the funds to assist the church’s food pantry.
