Any money not used for event expenses will be donated to Our Daily Bread and Denton Community Food Center.

2023 Event Success

The 2023 Empty Bowls of Denton Event had a banner year raising over $20,000. The $10,000 given to Our Daily Bread provided approximately 2,000 meals to our neighbors in need. The $10,000 given to the Denton Community Food Center enabled them to purchase approximately $80,000 worth of food from the Tarrant Area Food Bank and local retailers.

Generous Community Support

Empty Bowls of Denton 2023 is grateful for the following items generously provided by members of Denton community. We look forward to adding your name here for 2024!

What is Empty Bowls?

Empty Bowls is an international effort to fight hunger. We are fortunate to have this program right here in Denton for the benefit of our community.

Empty Bowls is a fundraising luncheon where ticket-holders select a handcrafted bowl of their choice, and are served bread and delicious soup...a ministry of Christ The Servant Lutheran Church in Denton.

All proceeds from this benefit are given to assist the Denton Community Food Center and Our Daily Bread together with Monsignor King Outreach Center in Denton.

Get Involved

If you want to be involved, contact the church office. Professional artists of all kinds can help; from potters who donate bowls, to artists who glaze and fire bowls, to professionals in other media who promote the event. If you're not an artist, then you can still help us raise money to feed the hungry in Denton.

We have already begun to collect bowls for the next luncheon. We would also love to make a presentation to your group, about the needs of the hungry in our community, and how you can help.
