Barnabas Center's 2022 Empty Bowls Marketplace

Bidding Opens October 1!

Barnabas Center raises awareness of our neighbors coping with food insecurity through the annual Empty Bowls fundraising luncheon. At the luncheon, all guests receive a bowl that has been painted by local volunteers.

On this Barnabas Empty Bowls online marketplace, you can also shop for some of the most beautifully hand-painted and professionally crafted bowls and art pieces from the comfort of your home.

In addition to the more than 100 bowls painted by local residents who donated their time and talents featured in this auction, this year's Empty Bowls Marketplace also features the work of seven talented artists: Stephen Heywood, Billie McCray, Michael Fay, Barbara Koontz, and Lis Krawiecki.

Register as a bidder, and then check out the extensive inventory of bowls created by our amazing artists.  Bidding will close on November 20th, 2022 at 5:00 pm. 

What better holiday gift than a hand-crafted bowl or piece of art, with 100% of the proceeds supporting Barnabas Center and its efforts to combat hunger? If you prefer not to purchase a bowl, you can still show your support by using the Donate option below.

Note: Purchases will be available for pickup at Barnabas Center, 1303 Jasmine Street, Fernandina Beach, FL, on November 30 and December 1st  from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Shipping is not available. Please bring your printed receipt or picture ID.
