“Empty Bowls of Champaign County” is an event to raise awareness about the growing problem of hunger in Champaign County. In 2016, bowls were empty for thousands of Champaign County residents. Food insecurity is a hard reality for many of our neighbors and Second Harvest Food bank is working hard to alleviate this inequity. You can too. The event is a fundraiser for Second Harvest Food Bank of Champaign, Clark and Logan Counties offering patrons a beautifully hand-crafted ceramic bowl and a simple meal of soup and bread for $15 per bowl. All proceeds benefit the Food Bank, which supports 10 Champaign County member agencies-all local food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. Second Harvest Food Bank collects, stores, and distributes over 600,000 pounds of food annually to these member agencies for distribution to hungry families and individuals throughout the county. Join us for a modest meal with a powerful message.
