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 23 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 turn in your ticket in exchange for a 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 more than $4,000 was presented to Faith Lutheran’s Mustard Seed Ministry and Journey Fellowship’s “Feed a Friend” program.  Representatives from each group will give a presentation at this year’s event sharing how the funds were used to assist the feeding programs. Applications for this year’s fundraiser are currently being accepted. Click here to submit an application.
