Empty Bowls 2016
March 20, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 6:30 pm
A community meal to fight hunger
The annual Empty Bowls is a simple community meal of bread and soup to help remind people of the one in seven residents of Allegheny County who are facing hunger.
This marks the 21st year that Just Harvest and Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank will co-host the event. Funds raised will benefit both organizations equally.
New this year is two available seating times: 1:30-3:30pm and 4:30-6:30pm (more details below).
Pittsburgh’s Empty Bowls typically draws more than 1,500 people and in its past 20 years has raised more than $500,000 to fight hunger in our region.
The dinner features soup cooked by some of Pittsburgh’s top restaurants. Local personality soup servers, a silent auction of ceramic art and celebrity-autographed bowls, live music, children’s activities, and soup-to-go are part of the festivities.
Each ticket-holder gets to choose a beautiful handmade bowl to take home. Tickets are $22 in advance (purchase below until 12:30pm Sunday, March 20th) and $25 at the door.
