Fort Bend Empty Bowls


Fort Bend Empty Bowls

Friday, June 10, 2022

East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry has been a mainstay in the community since 1990, providing food and financial assistance to our Fort Bend neighbors who have nowhere else to turn.  We were able to keep our doors open throughout the entire pandemic, so we need help fundraising now more than ever before!

Last year, the Ministry helped over 46,000 residents of Fort Bend County. The value of the food distributed was $616,336.49. The financial assistance program paid out $209,844.50 to help with rent, mortgage or utility bills which prevented families from being evicted from their homes or having utilities disconnected.

To help ensure that the Ministry remains a source of emergency support for Fort Bend County families in crisis we are preparing for our
13th Annual Fort Bend Empty Bowls
Friday, June 10, 2022                                    
6:30 p.m.– 9:30 p.m.
Safari Texas Ranch

Guests of the event will be served a delicious meal of soup and bread in recognition and support of our neighbors who don’t have enough to eat.  We will also be serving wonderful appetizers and desserts along with a cash bar.  Fort Bend Empty Bowls will feature hand-painted bowls which have been donated by local professional artist, Albert Goldreich and other amateur artists in the area. These bowls will be available for purchase. There will also be bowl, silent and live auctions, a Wine Pull and Whiskey Pull!  The Honorable James Patterson is serving as the event auctioneer.  Live music by Danny Ray and the Acoustic Production will help us dance the night away!  Come out and help us fill empty bowls in Fort Bend County.
