Our popular Empty Bowls dinner gathering is always a heart-warming and family-friendly evening of great art, music, food and friendship -- our largest fundraiser of the year. Your ticket includes selecting a one-of-a-kind soup bowl to take home, handcrafted by a local artist or community member. Hundreds of beautiful bowls to select from! Then join your neighbors in a simple meal of soup and bread as a symbolic reminder of those in our community who go hungry. All proceeds benefit local families facing financial crises - whose bowls and pantries are empty - so that they may be filled. Funds go directly to ODB's programs to help our neighbors in need achieve financial stability.
Its All About Neighbors Helping Neighbors!
