Empty Bowls is the Amherst Survival Center’s signature fundraiser, and we are excited to bring it back this year. Out of caution for the safety of all, Empty Bowls will be an outside to-go event at the Amherst Survival Center, located at 138 Sunderland Road in Amherst. A limited number of tables will be set up outside for dining. Tickets are $40 each. For each ticket you reserve, you will receive:
- A beautiful handcrafted bowl of your choice, donated by a local potter
- Delicious soup made by local restaurants and our kitchen ready to eat or reheat later (vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options). The soup menu will be posted before the event.
Additional Ways to Support Empty Bowls
Whether attending the event or not, you can support Empty Bowls by purchasing an Empty Bowls apron, raffle tickets for a one-of-a-kind Josh Simpson bowl or platter, or make a donation, using this form.
Empty Bowls aprons for $20, pictured at left with the logo above.
We will raffle five one-of-a-kind Josh Simpson bowls or platters. You can see his work at www.megaplanet.com. Raffle tickets are $10 each and you can choose which bowl drawing you’d like enter.
Can’t make the event? Donations of any amount are appreciated. Greenfield Savings Bank is matching all donations up to $5,000!
All funds raised will support our food and nutrition programs, making sure everyone in our community has the food they need.
