2017 Empty Bowls Event in Rapid City

2017 Empty Bowls Event in Rapid City

  Apr 11, 2017

  South Dakota School of Mines Surbeck Center

Join us for the 5th Annual Empty Bowls Event

The Empty Bowls event benefits the BackPack Program of Feeding South Dakota while raising awareness about the issue of hunger in our state and local community. The Empty Bowls event is a simple meal of soup, bread, dessert and drinks, where attendees receive a hand-painted ceramic soup bowl as a reminder of the bowls we still need to fill for the hungry.
