Held at the North Texas Food Bank’s Perot Family Campus in Plano, Empty Bowls provides bowl-friendly fare prepared by talented chefs and restaurants. Each guest will select a handcrafted bowl from a local artisan to serve as a reminder that not everyone’s bowl is full.

Our last in-person Empty Bowls took place back in 2020 with more than 750 attendees, and the community helped raise more than $210,000 to provide 630,000 nutritious meals to North Texans who are experiencing hunger.

Empty Bowls provides critical funds that support the North Texas community. Over the last 7 years of Empty Bowls events, generous attendees and sponsors have helped raise more than $1.5 million or 4.5 million meals for our neighbors facing hunger.

Tickets to Empty Bowls are on sale for $60 and each ticket sold helps NTFB provide 180 meals to our neighbors facing hunger!
