Benefitting Feeding the Valley food bank’s Kids Café Program

March 6 – Northside Recreation Center

2010 American Way, Columbus, GA 31909

Cost: $15 for Adults, $5 for Children under 12


Columbus, GA, January 11, 2016:  “Empty Bowls” is an international, grassroots effort to raise funds and awareness in the fight against hunger. Each year the Columbus Parks and Recreation Department holds its main charity fundraiser “The Empty Bowl Brunch” benefitting Kids Café, a local program of Feeding the Valley Food Bank. This program provides 6,225 hot, nutritional meals and snacks every week day to low-income children at more than 12 locations in Columbus and Phenix City.  In addition to providing hot meals to children, Kids Café program also offers a safe haven, where under the supervision of trustworthy staff, a child can get involved in educational, recreational and social activities.


This year the Empty Bowl Brunch will be on Sunday, March 6th from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at Northside Recreation Center, 2010 American Way, Columbus, GA 31909. 

(706) 576-5532.


Ticket holders will be able to choose a hand painted or created bowl (to keep) from among hundreds of uniquely made pieces and enjoy all-you-can-eat “homemade” style soups, breads, desserts and drinks - and 100% of the proceeds go to the Kids Café.  Last year, this event raised $7,305 which provided more than 43,830 meals for children in our community.


Cost: $15 for Adults, $5 for Children under 12


Tickets can be purchased in advance at Britt David Cultural Arts Studio, 2700 W. Britt David Road, Columbus, GA 31906 (706) 653-4196 or at the event at Northside Recreation Center.
