Empty Bowls of the Albemarle

May 12th & 13th

Empty Bowls of the Albemarle is an annual event designed to create a greater awareness about hunger in northeastern North Carolina, through programs offered by the Food Bank of the Albemarle.

Tickets are available for the Preview Party and Silent Auction, which includes entry to the luncheon on the following day. Or, tickets can be purchased for the Empty Bowls Luncheon only.  Each ticket holder may select one piece of handcrafted pottery made by local artisans and arts education programs to take home as a keepsake and reminder of the many empty bowls across the Albemarle area. (Note that while a ticket to the Preview Party includes the Luncheon, only one bowl redemption is available).

Preview Party & Silent Auction – Tuesday, May 12, 2020 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Empty Bowls Luncheon – Wednesday, May 13, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. or 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
