The Empty Bowls Lunch Event Fundraiser Returns to Albany

Support a Good Cause, Enjoy Delicious Food and Take Home a Handcrafted Bowl

Albany, GA – The Sowega Council on Aging (SCOA) and Albany Area Arts Council (AAAC) are excited to announce the return of the “Empty Bowls” event, taking place on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at The Event Center at Northwest Library (2507 Dawson Road, Albany). This special event aims to raise awareness about senior hunger and provide funding for the SCOA’s Home Delivered Meals program and programs sponsored by the AAAC. Since its inception in 2012, the event continues to sell out each year.

SCOA and AAAC are organizations that value community partnerships – an aspect of Empty Bowls that is necessary for its success. Local restaurants donate soups and other foods to the Empty Bowls event, and area artisans create unique bowls that go to each ticketholder. The bowls symbolize the empty bowls of seniors in the community who often go without meals.

Ticket information:

  • Tickets are $40 per person and include a delicious lunch provided by local restaurants and caterers and a pottery bowl handcrafted by local artisans.
  • Tickets are available only online.
  • Space is limited, so get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to support a great cause, enjoy delicious food, and take home a beautiful piece of pottery. Purchase your tickets today by visiting and clicking on Empty Bowls Event at the top of the page.
