This simple soup supper is bringing the community together each February to bring awareness to the 1 in 7 individuals in Grayson County who are food insecure. Join the community on February 20, 2023 at St. Joseph Parish Hall, 204 N. Main Street from 4PM-7PM CT for the 6th Annual Empty Bowls. Each ticket for $25 will provide simple soup supper and choice of keepsake bowl. This year we will again host painting parties and are seeking event sponsors. Call 270-259-4000 to see how you can get involved.
GCA was thrilled that last year the 5th Annual Empty Bowls (2022) was a huge success raising $10,000 for the food pantry representing 50,000 meals for local families. American Fantasy Artist and Grayson County native, Larry Elmore dragon bowl was a huge hit, local restaurants provided tasty soups to enjoy. We appreciate the individuals and businesses that sponsored the event.
100% of proceeds stay in Grayson County helping our friends and neighbors!
In 2023 will be an in person soup supper, painting parties, and table sponsors.

Paint parties provide hundreds of bowls to sell. Community partners sponsor a table at the event to show their support for the GCA Food Pantry. We are looking forward to paint parties in 2023!!
Every meal purchased for $25 includes a beautiful hand crafted bowl and delicious soup donated by a local restaurant. February 20, 2023 we will be gathering for another wonderful supper together!
