7th Annual Empty Bowl Dinner
Giving Back to our Community
Thank you to our patrons, our sponsors, and our restaurants for their continued support of the feeding ministries at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church. Due to COVID-19, we will not be hosting our dinner this year at the church. We have lost far too many of our sponsors and other restaurants and cafes across our nation due to this pandemic.
So this year we are giving back to our community.
Below are the restaurants and cafes that have faithfully supported the six years of Empty Bowl Dinners at St. Stephen’s. You can click on their name to be directed to their website. As a thank you for their support, we invite you to patronize as many of these establishments over the course of October and November.
Your orders will help to say thank you to these institutions that have helped us in our fight against poverty and hunger. If you wish to say thank you to them you can click here for a downloadable Empty Bowl Dinner thank you card. Please let them know that you are calling from St. Stephen’s.
Also, if possible, please be generous to your server whether you are dining in-house, ordering takeout, or curbside pick-up. One thing we learned at the food pantry during this crisis is that servers in our community were hit especially hard by the closure of public spaces.
A typical ticket price for the dinner is $30. This helps to fund our food ministries at St. Stephen’s. Food insecurity has increased to unimaginable levels as people find themselves unemployed through furloughs or lost jobs. Demand for services, and health and safety precautions have had a significant impact on our pantry. Despite health concerns, roughly 800 families a month seek out the services of our food pantry. Many of those families are new to our pantry, seeking assistance for the first time. And there is no end in sight.
Thank you again for being part of the fight to end hunger. Because of you, a family will not have to go to bed hungry.
