Empty Bowls

Help fight hunger in our community!  It's that wonderful time of year when the community comes together to help create a one-of-a-kind fundraising event!  YOU are what makes this event wonderful and unique... and we need YOUR help! 


We cannot believe it has been 12 years since the first Empty Bowls event in Longmont! Many of you have made painting bowls an annual tradition with us, and for that we are so thankful.

What started as a bunch of photos taped to our wall has now become a bunch of albums on our Facebook page. From the start, we have been so proud of this community... not only for helping us contribute to this wonderful event, but for the most amazing CREATIVITY too!  You never cease to amaze us. We do our best to photograph all the bowls painted and post them to our Facebook. We keep adding new albums as more and more bowls are painted. CLICK HERE FOR PHOTOS...BE sure to scroll down to all the albums, tag your bowl and share your masterpiece with friends!
