Our event proceeds go to fighting hunger. In 2022 Empty Bowls McKinney raised $120,000 to fight hunger in our community.
We are in unprecedented times 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 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. Each participant takes home a handcrafted bowl as a reminder of those who are hungry in our community.
Proceeds of the event go to Community Lifeline Center to help provide food for their Community Lifeline Market as well as Feeding Friends and Families mobile distributions and to Community Garden Kitchen to serve hot meals to anyone in need, no questions asked.
