About this Event

Bidwell Riverside Center's Empty Bowls event seeks to shed light on the food insecurity faced by our neighbors, and raise funds to support Bidwell Riverside Center's mission to increase stability and self-sufficiency in our community. In Polk County, 1 in 4 residents are food insecure, and Bidwell is working to change that.

Our Distribution Center, the largest-serving food pantry in Iowa, served more than 16,000 members of the community in 2018. We distributed approximately 133,000 clothing items, 40,900 diapers, 4,200 units of baby formula or food, and 33,800 toiletry items. Access to food, toiletries, diapers, baby food, formula, clothing and household items is vital to our clients, and the need is not subsiding.

Each attendee will select a hand-made ceramic bowl upon entering, a gift to take home and remind them to fill the bowls of others as often as they can. The event includes live music, hors d’ouevres, dinner, dessert and a cash bar.

The event will also feature a Wine Pull sponsored by Johnston WineStyles.
