Help Fill The Empty Bowls In Our Community

Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort by artists and craftspeople in cities and towns across the country to feed the hungry in their communities. Our local Fort Bend Empty Bowls benefits East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry (EFBHNM).
“What we do at EFBHNM,” says Development Director Stacey Williams, “is serve the basic human needs of families in our community in a temporary financial crisis. We see new families each week, and it’s often not who you would expect. Grocery store prices are rising, and so many of our neighbors are affected by job loss, a change in family dynamics, and other unexpected situations that leave them in need of assistance.” In 2023, EFBHNM assisted 18,748 adults and 16,841 children experiencing food insecurity.
Now in its 15th year, Empty Bowls–EFBHNM’s largest fundraiser of the year–will be held June 14, 2024 at Houston Marriott Sugar Land. Dinner includes a simple meal of appetizers, delicious soups, and bread. This year’s Empty Bowls title sponsor is Houston Methodist Sugar Land. Local restaurants, including Avenida Brazil Churrascaria, Texas Biergarten, and B.B Italia, will be providing the soup. Various sponsorship opportunities are still available.
Empty Bowls attendees always look forward to selecting a bowl (for a nominal donation) handcrafted by members of the Fort Bend community. EFBHNM Executive Director Vickie Coates says, “This fundraiser is fun, and it takes a village. We invite everyone in the community to join us this spring to paint a bowl for Empty Bowls. No artistic experience required!”
