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 19, 2024 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 6th Annual Empty Bowls (2023) was a huge success raising $10,270 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!

Paint parties provide hundreds of bowls to sell each year. Community partners sponsor a table at the event to show their support for the GCA Food Pantry.
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!
