What’s the Scoop on Soup? 22nd Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser Slated for March 1-3
Feed My People Food Bank takes a bite out of local hunger
Dip your spoon into goodwill at the 22nd annual Empty Bowls fundraiser courtesy of Feed My People Food Bank. The fundraiser aims to “take a bite out of local hunger” and tackle food insecurity throughout the Chippewa Valley by selling gift boxes containing locally handcrafted bowls.
Sales from each ticket go toward meals for the hungry of the Chippewa Valley — a $20 ticket will help provide at least 80 meals to those in need, according to Feed My People communications specialist Susie Haugley.
One bowl may not seem like a lot. But when they're all stacked together, the impact is huge.

“One bowl may not seem like a lot,” Haugley said. “But when they’re all stacked together, the impact is huge.”
While your Empty Bowl may seem, well – empty – never fear! It won’t stay empty for long. Empty Bowls’ empty bowls contain nothing, except for potential.
To aid in filling bowl space, Empty Bowls teamed up with the Pablo Center and chef Steve Knowlton to create a specialty soup for this year’s event. Gift packages contain two specialty soup recipes, a surprise secret soup ingredient, and an exclusive cooking show from the Pablo Center, giving you the scoop on the soup and how to make it.
The Empty Bowls fundraiser kicks off Feed My People’s 40th anniversary this year, and Haugley said it will be an important occasion to bring the community together and raise awareness – even through a one-off cooking show.
Empty Bowls will run March 1-3, 2022. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Empty Bowls website at give.fmpfoodbank.org.
