Pictures from the 2020 morning group that served at Empty Bowls. HWC had another group that served in the evening. Thank you for your continued service in the community! Lynn Grey and Kathy Noll made sure everything ran smoothly.

Empty Bowls volunteers from Hopkins Women’s Club will again don hats and serve soup at the event March 10, 2020.

A longstanding tradition – on March 13, 2018, the 20th-annual Empty Bowls fundraiser will be held, supporting ResourceWest and ICA Food Shelf. Our club will serve soup in the “sky room” dining area at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.

Here’s a great photo of our morning group:


Our participation on March 7, 2017 was highlighted in the local Sun Sailor (Hometown Source):
