Mar 20: Empty Bowls Dinner

A community meal to fight hunger

2016 Empty bowls flyer

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.
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.
New this year: two available seating times: 1:30-3:30pm and 4:30-6:30pm.
Each ticket-holder gets to choose a beautiful handmade bowl to take home. Tickets are $22 in advance (purchase here) and $25 at the door.   (Note that for online ticket sales, if you have a smartphone that can access email, you don't need to print the ticket or pay for a text;  you'll receive a confirmation email with the necessary code to show at the door).   Please call Just Harvest at (412) 431-8960 x106 with any questions.
