Empty Bowl Luncheons are held by Food Banks across the country. Designed to raise awareness about the problem of hunger in our nation and as well as in our local communities, these luncheons typically offer a simple fare of soup and bread and often feature the work of local artists who have donated works themed around the Empty Bowl Concept.
In Westmoreland County the Empty Bowl Event is totally volunteer driven; which makes it a “true” fundraiser! Karen Piper and a dedicated group of men and women put together an amazing event for all ages to enjoy and learn about the plight of the hungry in our community.
Bowls are made by local artists, high school students and the community in general. Soup and bread is donated by local restaurants and bakeries! An amazing Chinese Auction is always held along with special items to be raffled or auctioned off. An information table on the Westmoreland County Food Bank and hunger in our community is also on hand the day of the event.
