Join us for the 24th Annual Empty Bowl Benefit Dinner and be a part of an important community service event. Our purpose for the dinner is to bring awareness to our surrounding community of the hunger and homelessness present both locally and globally.
Attendees choose a ceramic bowl, handcrafted by a community member, to be used as their soup bowl for the evening. The bowl is filled with wonderful soups donated by area businesses, restaurants, and individuals from Arcadia University and the surrounding community. The bowl is taken home to serve as a reminder that for many people around the world an empty bowl is the reality of their mealtime.
100% of the proceeds benefit two agencies assisting the hungry and the homeless. This year's proceeds will benefit the Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network, a local agency that provides temporary shelter and food to homeless families, and Rise Against Hunger, an international program which provides crisis response, nutritious meals, and empowerment initiatives to those affected by natural disasters and those in impoverished areas.
Tickets are $12 for all students and children and $15 for non-students. Guests are asked to purchase a ticket either online or at the door AND bring a non-perishable food item with you to the dinner.
