2012 Empty Bowls Event

Grant Application Process

The EBVP committee will select grant recipients from among local organizations with programs that provide meals or groceries to people in need in our Peninsula communities. Grant recipients for 2014 will be selected by January 20, 2014. Recipient organizations will be notified by phone or email, and then will be posted on this web page.

We are now accepting grant applications. To be eligible for consideration, an organization must be a nonprofit with tax exempt status, must be located on the Virginia Peninsula (as far west as Williamsburg/James City County to as far east as Hampton), and must operate programs that help to feed people in need in Virginia Peninsula communities. Funds raised by the Empty Bowls Virginia Peninsula event go to feed people in need. While we may select organizations that provide for other needs as well, the funds Empty Bowls donates are committed to be used to fight hunger.

The grant application form is available online or by emailing
