About Empty Bowls McKinney

  • Our event proceeds go to fighting hunger

  • We are in unprecedented times due to COVID and the need for food is great!

  • 140,000 Collin County residents are food insecure

  • Nearly 9,000 McKinney kids will go to bed hungry tonight

  • 45% of food stamp recipients are children

 

You can help and have a fun-filled family evening at the same time.

This unique annual event features a showcase of one-of-a-kind bowls handcrafted by professional and student artists. Guests enjoy a sampling of gourmet soups, breads, and sweets prepared by chefs from local restaurants. They take home one of these empty bowls as a reminder of all the empty bowls due to hunger in the local community.  

 

Proceeds of the event go to Community Lifeline Center to help stock their Lifeline Market and to Community Garden Kitchen to serve hot meals to anyone in need, no questions asked.
