2019 Empty Bowls Header

Empty Bowls As part of an international fight against hunger, this collaborative effort between the City of Columbus Recreation and Parks, several churches, businesses and program sponsors has raised over $276,000 in the last 21 years for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. For a  minimum $10 donation, the public is invited to select a bowl and enjoy a meal of homemade soup and bread.
