Planning Committee Opportunities

Are you interested in helping plan and shape the next Memphis Empty Bowls Project event? 

It is an exciting time to jump in. As our feeding program continues to grow and thrive, we're rebooting our fundraising event to work in this year's new venue, Crosstown Concourse. We're looking for individuals to help with event planning, social media support, fundraising efforts, administrative work, marketing, graphic design, and more. 

Please contact Kristen Berning ([email protected]) if you have any questions.


The Memphis Empty Bowls Project would not be possible without the help of our volunteers. We are grateful for the individuals and organizations for their service in helping combine community, creativity, and compassion to fight hunger in the Mid-South.
