Fill Your Bowl, Fight Hunger at Arcadia University’s Annual Benefit Dinner

October 27, 2015 Christopher Sarachilli

Arcadia is hosting its 22nd annual Empty Bowl Benefit Dinner on Monday, Nov. 16, in Grey Towers Castle. There will be two dinner sessions: 4:30 to 6 p.m. and 6:30 to 8 p.m.

The Dinner allows community members to come together to combat hunger and homelessness in U.S. cities and around the world. Attendees select from hand-crafted, ceramic bowls and enjoy soups and desserts from local restaurants and bakeries. The bowls, which attendees keep, serve as a reminder that, somewhere in the world, someone is without a meal or shelter.

All proceeds benefit The Hunger Project and Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network. Last year, the Dinner raised more than $13,000; more than $125,000 has been raised in its 21 years.

Tickets for students and children are $12; general public tickets are $15. To purchase tickets, visit:
