The annual Empty Bowls is a simple community meal of soup and bread to help remind people of the one in eight residents of Allegheny County who are facing hunger. 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.
This marks the 22nd year that Just Harvest and Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank will co-host the event. Funds raised will benefit both organizations equally.
There are two available seating times: 1:30-3:30pm and 4:00-6:00pm.
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 $20 for adults in advance ($25 at the door) and $10 for children ages 3-12. (No tickets needed for children under 3.)
