Empty Bowls Virtual Event
Shortening the Distance from Hunger to Hope
Out of an abundance of caution, the tough decision to cancel the in-person portion of Empty Bowls for the safety of all involved. We do hope you will still join us for our virtual silent auction!
Empty Bowls "Imagine" may have a new look and feel, but the mission is the same, shortening the distance from hunger to hope.
The pandemic may be slowing down, but hunger in our communities is not. Second Harvest of the Greater Valley is still seeing higher than average need.
SHGV is expanding our Mobile Fresh program to include weekend and evening distributions, but we can't do it alone. Your sponsorship of Empty Bowls 2021 will allow SHGV to continue providing life-sustaining food daily to those that need it the most. Our goal is to shorten the distance between hunger and hope, and the sponsorship you provide will allow us to do that.
“Mobile fresh does so much for our family, we are able to pay our bills and still have food in the fridge for our children. We get enough that we can share with our neighbors too, which is so helpful, especially during times like these.”
SHGV's Mobile Fresh program provided 2.6 million pounds of food into San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties, and we are on pace to increase that during 2021/2022. We will be adding evening and weekend distributions to help families, seniors, and children that desperately need the food that we are providing.
Won't you be a part of the solution?
The Online Silent Auction will open on Saturday September 11 at 8 am and run until Saturday, September 27 at 8 pm
