Help combat hunger, one bowl at a time.

Empty Bowls was created to bring awareness to hunger of all types, foster community, and raise funds to support those in need.

At Empty Bowls of Carroll County, you will experience a delicious sampling of soups provided and served by 14 of the area’s best restaurants.

Our next Empty Bowls event will be Sunday, March 31, 2019 at Portico, St. John Church, 43 Monroe Street, Westminster, 21157.
