Empty Bowls was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets and waited patiently in line to pick up their bowl and soup. Thank you to those who additionally made a donation, purchased an apron, and raffle tickets. Many people couldn’t attend the event, but still supported Empty Bowls by making a donation and having it matched by Greenfield Savings Bank. Thanks to all of you and our business sponsors, we raised over $41,000 for our food and nutrition programs!
This will have a huge impact. Someone newly registering for our pantry recently commented, “It’s so great that there are programs like yours that people can use during these difficult times.”
This event would not be possible without the donations of soup from ten local restaurants and establishments and the hundreds of bowls donated by ceramic artists. Below you’ll find a complete list of these amazing Empty Bowls partners. We also extend our gratitude to the tremendous volunteers who helped with the event.
We are blown away by this outpouring of support and are so grateful for your commitment to our mission and the very direct way we are supporting neighbors in meeting their basic needs. We look forward to seeing you at Empty Bowls 2023!
