Empty Bowls is an event that brings together a broad cross-section of people from surrounding communities to support the work of the Amherst Survival Center. Patrons choose from beautiful hand-made bowls donated by local potters and then dine on steaming soups, bread and salad donated by local restaurants and cheerfully served up by local celebrities.
Every year Empty Bowls has been able to raise more money and greater awareness because of the generosity of so many in the community. The Pub very generously provides the space, waitstaff and logistical support to make the event possible. Local ceramic artists throughout the Pioneer Valley donate their artistic talents and time to create handmade bowls. The contributions from artists range in age and talents, from students to professional ceramic artists.
Area restaurants donate delicious soup. Companies donate money and resources, and volunteers organize the event. It is a great example of how so many people can give, even a little bit, and make such a huge difference. One hundred percent of the proceeds supports programs and services at the center. Every year brings new artists and new soups. Get your tickets early and don’t miss out!
