Empty Bowls Naples celebrates its 2023 Grant Recipients

Empty Bowls Naples Inc. distributed $185,000 in grants to twelve local organizations supporting the Empty Bowls mission to "eliminate hunger in our communities ONE BOWL at a time". Funding for the Empty Bowls Naples Inc. Grant Program comes from the net proceeds of the annual Empty Bowls Naples Event held in Cambier Park each January and additional fundraising activities throughout the year.

It is with great pleasure and pride that we announce our 2023 Empty Bowls Naples Inc. grant recipients. These organizations range in size from small to large and together help address the food insecurities of children, elderly, disabled, low-income individuals and families, and unemployed populations in our communities.
