Santa Barbara Empty Bowls 2021

Santa Barbara Empty Bowls will be an outside, in-person event on December 5 at our Santa Barbara Warehouse (next to Ben Page Youth Center). This year, the traditional Empty Bowls soup luncheon will be transformed into an outdoor holiday market, where guests can explore a range of holiday gift opportunities, all benefiting the Foodbank of Santa Barbara’s work to transform hunger into health in our community. Included with their purchase of $30 ticket, guests will receive the handmade ‘Empty Bowl’ of their choice, a container of the soup to heat and enjoy at home, and a collection of Empty Bowls-exclusive offers from local restaurants to fill your bowl following the event. Guests will also have opportunities to take a Foodbank Warehouse tour, purchase tickets for the chance to win amazing raffle prizes, and access to the Empty Bowls pottery marketplace. The event will follow all current Covid-19 health protocols. Buy tickets and learn more below!

Empty Bowls is a community event to end hunger alongside neighbors and friends. Local restaurants donate delicious fresh gourmet soup and artisan bread. Guests savor the meal in one-of-a-kind bowls created by local ceramicists, then take the bowls home to treasure as a gift and reminder of hunger in our community.
