Empty Bowls in 2022
Empty Bowls remains a crucial part of Channel One’s work to increase food security for our friends and neighbors. All of the funds raised from the 18th annual Empty Bowls will be put back into our community and will directly benefit those who are facing food insecurity in our region.
Thanks to your support, Empty Bowls 2022 raised over $86,000 to address hunger in our region.
Feel free to reach out with any questions about Empty Bowls by calling Jessica Sund at 507-424-1729 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us and share in the awareness and marketing benefits associated with supporting this vital community resource that provides nearly nine million pounds of food across southeast Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
Businesses and community groups of all sizes are encouraged to learn more about our Empty Bowls sponsorship opportunities or view this year’s sponsors.
Place a Group Order
If you are not a sponsor, but would like to place an order for your office, please use our order form.
Sponsors will receive an e-mail from Channel One regarding their soup orders closer to the event. Please reach out to Jessica Sund at email@example.com if you would like to place an order for additional soups on top of what you receive in your sponsor package.
Donate Specialty Bowls
Channel One seeks donations year-round from our local arts community in an effort to continue the tradition of providing handmade or hand-painted bowls to our event participants.
While bowls created by the public are included with soup purchases, our artist-made bowls are sold separately as ‘specialty’ bowls, raising additional funds and providing more meals to the community.
If you have any questions about bowl donations, please e-mail Haley at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 507-990-2314.
Donate a Custom Bowl
Paint a custom bowl and donate it to Channel One’s annual Empty Bowls fundraiser! Jessica’s Paint Your Own Pottery has to-go bowl painting art kits available year-round. For instructions, visit jessicaspyop.com/channel-one or reach out to Jessica Taylor at (507) 405-0557.
Place an Order
Groups can place a soup order the same way as individuals and have a single person come to pick their order up for the whole group.
