What is Empty Bowls? Empty Bowls is Fourth & Hope’s annual event to raise awareness and funds for the fight against hunger in Yolo County. Our seventh annual event will take place on October 16 and 17, 2013. 100% of the funds raised at our Empty Bowls event goes directly to Fourth & Hope and it’s mission to care for the hungry and homeless in our community. This year we hope to raise over $50,000 to continue to provide our myriad services. The evening VIP Reception Supper and two luncheon seating's will be held at the Historic Hotel Woodland.
