The New Richmond Empty Bowls Event is a fundraising event donating 100% of its profits to the school district’s Happy Kids Backpack Program (HKBP). HKBP is a program providing backpacks of food on Friday afternoons to children suffering from hunger in their homes. Hunger is prevalent in our community, as we currently send over 70 backpacks home with students on a weekly basis right here in the New Richmond School District. Not only are we trying to feed the hungry with our program, but we also educate families on healthy meals and continue to extend the healthy and fresh food options we provide through the program.
None of this would be possible without our volunteers, sponsors, donors, and supportive community! We thank you all for your time and continued support of this great event.
