Durham’s Empty Bowls

The concept of Empty Bowls is used worldwide to raise awareness and support to alleviate hunger by emphasizing that many people simply do not have enough to eat. The beautiful bowls donated by local artisans and, a highlight of the event, signify the many thousands of empty bowls in our community. Some of Durham Region’s finest chefs will provide signature cuisines and desserts to be enjoyed by 135 attendees.

Feed the Need in Durham provides perishable as well as non-perishable food to emergency food providers. Grocery chains make their excess food available to us at distribution centres, enabling us to help marginalized people in Durham benefit from eating a variety of healthy and nourishing foods including fresh vegetables, fruits, eggs, and milk.

If you would like to join us in the fight against hunger, please consider donating food, making a monetary donation, or volunteering your time.
