|Annual Empty Bowls Dinner to Raise Funds for Groundworks Food Shelf|
The 13th annual Empty Bowls dinner will take place on October 8th at Landmark College as a fundraiser for the Groundworks Collaborative Food Shelf.
The Steering Committee has come together to organize this 13th Empty Bowls Dinner to be held, on the beautiful Landmark College campus during Columbus Day weekend. They have been working with local potters and restaurants to arrange for the handmade bowls and delicious soups that make this event a unique joining of arts, social justice, and culinary delight.
Groundworks Food Shelf is serving more hungry households than ever before. Early last year Groundworks staff moved the entire Food Shelf into a larger space at the Drop In Center on South Main Street in Brattleboro. As a result, the number of individuals receiving emergency food assistance has reached 1,337 (292 households) in recent months. Keeping the shelves stocked with quality, nutritious food comes with a hefty price tag.
All proceeds from the October 8th Empty Bowls Dinner will support Groundworks Food Shelf.
As in previous years, the Steering Committee anticipates raising upwards of $30,000 with this one-night event. Tickets will go on sale in early September for seatings at 5pm and 6:30pm.
