Idaho Foodbank's Empty Bowls

Friday, Nov. 27

Nothing goes better with turkey leftovers (or is a delicious alternative to Thanksgiving ) than a yummy bowl of soup crafted from some of the Treasure Valley's best chefs. That's only one of the reasons why we adore The Idaho Foodbank's annual day-after-Thanksgiving Empty Bowls celebration where gallons of hot soup generously fill some beautifully handcrafted bowls, designed by professional and amateur artists and students. This is the 18th year the Foodbank (and several dozen of its loyal friends) will turn the Grove Plaza into Boise's biggest kitchen, featuring more than 30 varieties of soup. Most of the bowls go for about $10—soup is free—though some extraordinary bowls go for a few dollars more.
