Empty Bowls in Rapid City

Brought to you by the Leadership Rapid City Class of 2013

We invite you to join us for the 7th annual Empty Bowls event on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at the SD Mines, Surbeck Center in Rapid City, SD. There are three sessions to choose from at 11:00am, 12:30pm and 5:30pm. This event benefits the work of Feeding South Dakota's Child Hunger programs in western South Dakota. With 1 in every 6 children in South Dakota at risk of going hungry, programs like the BackPack Program and School Food Pantries are critical to ensure all ages of children have adequate access to nutritious foods.

Tickets for the event are $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 12 and under. Each ticket to the event includes a simple meal of soup, bread and dessert along with a ceramic hand-painted bowl. These bowls are painted by children and adults in our local communities and are a symbol of all of the bowls left to fill to ensure no one goes hungry.
