Presenting Sponsor MAIN STREET BOOKS, which opens its doors to house all of our beautiful bowls! Store owner, Diane Shepherd, dreamed of bringing Empty Bowls to Hattiesburg in 2012 to help feed hungry neighbors.

 

That first year, Diane and her family made the bowls, cooked the soup and desserts, managed all the publicity, and then gave Edwards Street Fellowship Center the $5,000 proceeds for the food pantry.

 

Since then, the event has grown tremendously with more than 25 restaurants donating food, plus scores of volunteers creating and painting bowls, handling logistics, serving at the event, and spreading the word that these EMPTY BOWLS fill the empty bowls of hungry neighbors. ❤️
