Empty Bowls Event

Join the Food Bank for Empty Bowls, enjoy a simple meal served in a handcrafted bowl, tour the warehouse and learn how we are working to get more nutritious food to people in need.

Every night, there are children in our community who go to
bed hungry.  Hunger is often a hidden problem. Empty Bowls is an event dedicated to raising hunger awareness. Join the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano for a simple meal served in a handcrafted bowl and learn what the Food Bank is doing to get food to people in need. Keep the handcrafted bowl you use as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community.

Chevron is sponsoring two events – one in each of the Food Bank warehouses.

Saturday, March 9
