The Empty Bowl Dinner is one of the most important community service programs the University hosts. It brings together the surrounding community with our campus community and benefits those in need.
On the night of the Empty Bowl Dinner, each person chose one of the donated, handcrafted bowls. Soup donated from many businesses, schools, and individuals from Arcadia University and the surrounding community was eaten from these bowls. The bowls are then taken home to serve as a reminder of the many people who eat from an empty bowl every day.
Our purpose for the Empty Bowl Dinner is to provide awareness of the hunger and homelessness that exists in our area and abroad. Each year the proceeds go to two organizations assisting the hungry and the homeless: one national and one international. The proceeds will go to the Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network, a local agency that provides temporary shelter and food to homeless families. The second agency is the Heifer Project International, which provides food and income-producing animals, as well as training in management and farming around the world to families in need.

At last year's 20th Annual Empty Bowl Dinner took
place on Monday, November 18th, $14,000 was raised to benefit agencies
addressing hunger and homelessness both locally and abroad.
