23rd Annual Empty Bowls

February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Held at the North Texas Food Bank’s Perot Family Campus in Plano, Empty Bowls brings together food, art and music lovers who have a heart for helping our neighbors. Each attendee will be able to enjoy delicious, bowl-friendly fare, prepared by talented chefs and restaurants from across North Texas. The event will also feature  live entertainment, as well as an interactive shopping experience and varied silent auction. In addition to great food and fun, each guest will be able to select a handcrafted bowl made by a local artisan that serves as a reminder that not everyone has access to a full bowl.

This signature event, now in its 23rd year has provided critical funds that support the North Texas community, to date Empty Bowls has helped the NTFB provide access to more than 6.5 million meals!
