EMPTY BOWLS 2021

Support CSA Homeless Services & Local Restaurants

Campaign Kick-Off Party – Sunday, March 14 at 4:00

Thank you Chef Chu for kicking off our Empty Bowls campaign with this wonderful cooking demonstration on how to make delicious wonton soup. Bon Appétit!

The pandemic has brought economic hardship, food insecurity and financial difficulties to so many in our community. And it’s not over yet: there are many empty bowls to fill in our community this year.

Empty Bowls is CSA’s only fundraiser for homeless services, which currently serves 700 people each year. Since we can’t safely host an in-person event just yet, we are raising funds through this special online campaign. Click here to make a gift.

We are also partnering with Appetite for Good to support local restaurants that have generously donated to CSA’s Empty Bowls and our pantry programs. When you purchase a tax-deductible meal voucher through Appetite for Good, you are supporting our local restaurants and feeding hungry neighbors at the same time!  Click here for information.

Participating restaurants include Armadillo Willy’s, Cascal, Chef Chu’s, Country Gourmet, Erik’s Delicafe, Hobee’s, JW Catering, La Fiesta, Red Rock Cafe and Rustic House.
