Join Bidwell Riverside Center for its 3rd annual Empty Bowls fundraiser at the Temple for the Performing Arts on Thursday, November 7, from 6-8 p.m. Empty Bowls seeks to shed light on the food insecurity faced by our neighbors and raise funds to support Bidwell Riverside Center’s mission to increase stability and self-sufficiency in our community. Nearly 1 in 4 Polk County residents are food insecure, and Bidwell is working to change that. Our Distribution Center, the largest-serving food pantry in Iowa, served over 16,000 members of the community in 2018. Each attendee at Empty Bowls will select a handmade artisan bowl to take home and remind them to fill the bowls of others as often as they can. The fundraising event also includes hors d’ouevres, a plated dinner, dessert and a cash bar.
