Empty Bowls is an annual tradition enjoyed by more than 500 people each year. Attendees search through more than 1,000 handcrafted bowls to find their favorites. Once selections are made and purchased, with all proceeds going to Emergency Food Network, attendees make their way to eat free soup, donated and served by Café Pacific Catering, Chambers Bay Grill, Happy Belly, Indo Asian Street Eatery, Infinite Soups, Pacific Grill, Spring Lake Café, Stanley and Seaforts, The Swiss, and X-Group Restaurants.
In 2017, EFN raised over $35,000 from Empty Bowls. This is the equivalent of 175,000 meals for food-insecure Pierce County residents. For more information about Empty Bowls, visit www.efoodnet.org.
