About this Event

Empty Bowls is St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore’s annual event that raises funds in support of programs that assist those in the Baltimore area struggling with hunger, homelessness, and poverty.

Empty Bowls 2021

This year, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are changing the format of this event to be an outdoor drive-through event. You will still receive the cherished Empty Bowls components including:

• A unique, hand-crafted ceramic bowl;

• A flight of three delicious soups from Baltimore's best restaurants in pre-packaged “To Go” container;

• Family-friendly entertainment as you drive through

• A special 15th Annual commemorative Empty Bowls gift.

Empty Bowls will take place on Saturday, April 10, 2021 from 1 PM to 4 PM outdoors at the Maryland State Fairgrounds. All volunteers and staff will wear masks, maintain social distance, and follow other safety measures to ensure a safe environment for all.

St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore places your safety, and the safety of our volunteers, as our highest responsibility. Our 2021 event will be an open air Drive-Thru to adhere to COVID safety protocols adapted from CDC recommendations. All food has been prepared in professionally licensed kitchens, and all event staff will be required to wear masks throughout the event. Additional masks, gloves & hand sanitizers will be readily available for staff and guests. If you have any questions regarding our protocols, or our event in general, please feel free to reach out to St. Vincent de Paul at LaTasha.Fisher@vincentbaltimore.org or 443-939-8576.

Will I be able to purchase tickets on site?

In order to have the appropriate amount of soup on site, we ask all tickets be purchased ahead of time.

Are your soups dietary friendly?

With the purchase of your ticket, you will be able to select the option of gluten free, vegetarian or vegan soups.

Can I schedule another time to pick up my soup?

We are only permitted to hand out soups day of the event 1pm-4pm. If you are unable to pick it up during this time frame, your purchase will be donated to our local shelter.

I do not drive but would still like to participate.

We would still love to have you! You can still purchase your tickets, then email giving@vincentbaltimore.org so that we can schedule a time to meet you at the front gate to pick up your soup!

Are there opportunities to volunteer?

We are grateful for the loyal support of our Empty Bowls volunteers, some of which have been helping for more than 10 years. Please know that the change in event style does not require volunteers. We plan on being back to our normal format next year. In the meantime, a ticket purchase or donation would be greatly appreciated.

I’m not comfortable attending events at this time. How can I help fight hunger in our community?

St. Vincent de Paul remains committed to ending hunger all year round. Since last March, we have served over 1.5 million meals. A donation of $100 in support of providing meals in our community h
