 Seattle Empty Bowls


Join the Ballard Food Bank for this beloved Spring event! On Saturday, April 25th from 4-7 p.m. we'll be dishing up soup, bread, and good cheer at the Nordic Heritage Museum. Local potters have handcrafted all of the bowls and cups that will be on display. Suggested donation: $20. All proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Ballard Food Bank!

Please consider making a donation during the Seattle Foundation’s one-day, online charitable giving event offered to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live. You can make your online gift to the Ballard Food Bank via the Seattle Foundation’s website between midnight and midnight (PST) on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 and your dollars are eligible for a percentage match from Seattle Foundation.
