Amherst, Empty Bowls Fundraiser

April 6 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

The Amherst Survival Center will host its 16th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser on Saturday, April 6th from 12-4pm at the Center’s site at 138 Sunderland Rd. North Amherst. Empty Bowls is a treasured local event that brings the community together to fight hunger and raise funds for the Center’s programs ensuring that area residents have access to the food they need. This year, Empty Bowls will again take place at the Center, with service from wonderful local celebrities including state legislators, town leaders, and special guests.

Guests select a beautiful, unique, handcrafted bowl made by a local artist and choose between a dozen delicious soups donated by local restaurants, along with salad and freshly baked bread. Meat, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free soup options will be available. The keepsake bowl is each guest’s to keep as a reminder of all the bowls they have helped to fill.

Tickets are $50 and are available online at www.amherstsurvival.org/emptybowls or by calling the Amherst Survival Center at 413-549-3968 x108. Guests who don’t want a handmade bowl may also choose “soup only” tickets for adults ($30) or for children ($10). Children 2 and under are free. Tickets can also be purchased in person on the day of the event.

Empty Bowls will include a raffle with exceptional prizes including handblown glass pieces from Josh Simpson, a private wine tasting from Provisions, and more! Raffle tickets are $10 each, 3 for $25, or 10 for $50. Additionally, Empty Bowls keepsake aprons will be available for purchase, and any donations on top of ticket purchases will be matched by Presenting Sponsor and Souper Hero, Greenfield Savings Bank, up to $5,000.
