“What is Empty Bowls? Since its small beginnings in 1990, Empty Bowls has become an international grassroots project to raise funds for local food shelves. Bowls are donated by artisans, made by congregants, students. Every guest chooses a bowl and is served a simple meal of delicious soup and bread. Everyone keeps their bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in their own community and throughout the world.” www.emptybowls.net
The cost will be $20/adults and $10 for children under 10.
All proceeds go to the Community Pantry of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 631-1770 by October 24
