Join us on Tuesday, March 12 for the 21st Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser at the Hopkins Center for the Arts!

Every year, Hopkins Public Schools students and community potters create beautiful bowls for a soup meal fundraising event to support ICA Food Shelf and ResourceWest. What makes Empty Bowls so wonderful?

Community

Neighbors, families, students, civic leaders, local businesses, congregations, and community organizations come together to share a meal while raising money to help our neighbors in need. Whether you join us as a volunteer or a guest, you're sure see and meet neighbors and friends, both new and old.

Soup

We are so thankful to the dozens of local restaurants that provide us with a variety of amazing soups throughout the day for Empty Bowls!  You'll have many choices anytime between 11:00 a.m and 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12.  The simple meal of soup and delicious bread reminds us of the empty bowls in our community. The event is free and open to all in our community. Attendees are invited to make a freewill donation to support ICA and ResourceWest.
