The Idaho Foodbank's Empty Bowls event is a great way to remain thankful during Thanksgiving week. On Friday, November 24th—the day after Thanksgiving—you will find more than 3,000 bowls waiting to be filled with delicious soup at the Grove Plaza in downtown Boise.

After stuffing yourself with turkey and pumpkin pie the day before, you can save those Thanksgiving leftovers and instead enjoy a meal at the 20th annual Empty Bowls event.

The Idaho Foodbank collects hundreds of handcrafted and hand-painted bowls from artisans, students, and studios throughout the year for this event. Attendees choose a bowl from among the varied options, with bowls beginning at $10. That bowl is then filled with a delicious soup donated from a local restaurant.

Empty Bowls for Those in Need

Warm yourself up with tasty soup while remembering how thankful you are to not go hungry or cold like so many Idahoans do. The funds raised by Empty Bowls go to provide support to those who need food assistance during Idaho's cold winter months.

Parking is free downtown on Friday, November 24th. Pack the family up and bring them downtown between 10am and 1:30pm for a unique dining experience that benefits others.

Interested in creating your own bowl for the event? Ceramica in Boise and Piggy Pots Pottery in Meridian are two locations where you can make a bowl to donate for Empty Bowls.

Want to donate a bowl? Drop off donated bowls at 3562 S. TK Avenue 83705 by November 20th. Any bowls dropped off after November 20 will be used for Empty Bowls 2018.
