Empty Bowl Benefit

Get creative for a cause

Get creative for a cause

The Empty Bowl Benefit brings together local personalities to support the Calgary Food Bank Food Link Program. Everyone from your favourite news anchor to local artists get creative by painting a one-of-a-kind ceramic bowl. These unique bowls, filled with goodies, will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
The Food Link Program provides quality food and supplies to 220 Calgary agencies and community programs so that they can focus on their program delivery rather than look for food donations. This year’s auction raised $9,035 to help feed Calgarians in need.
