Who makes Empty Bowls a success? VOLUNTEERS!

Without the hundreds of volunteers who support our events, we would never be able to assist in combating food insecurity in Monongalia County.

 

Who do we need? YOU!

No matter what your talents and strengths, there is a place for you at Empty Bowls!

 

When do we need you?

  • February for the Soup and Bread Luncheon

  • October for the Fall Fun Raiser

  • Year Round: educational activities with local kids, event planning, grant writing, mailing campaigns, and public relations.

 

Our biggest single day of volunteer need is during our annual Soup and Bread Luncheon which occurs the last Saturday in February. The event is held at Mylan Park and requires 500 individual volunteers!
