Volunteer Positions

Be involved with Empty Bowls by helping at events. Contact Mike and Tammy Miller (miketammymillereb@gmail.com) for more information about available positions.

Remember, the Empty Bowls Board reminds that “Volunteers purchase a ticket if they want to take a bowl home or partake of the soup, bread and cookies at the Luncheon. We all believe in the goals of Empty Bowls and include our financial support as well as our time and efforts.” Volunteers do not need to purchase a ticket if they just want to volunteer.

Also note that the Board has an age policy in regards to young people helping during the luncheon. It is as follows:

Guidelines for Youth Volunteers:
*Fourteen (14) is the minimum age for youth volunteers.
*Ages 14 and 15 must be accompanied by an adult mentor.
*Ages 16 and over may volunteer without a mentor.
