Empty Bowl Dinner

The Open Door’s annual Empty Bowl Dinner will be held on Thursday, May 13, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Cruiseport Gloucester. Extra parking is available at Good Harbor Beach with regular trolley service provided by CATA to and from the event site. Tickets are $12 and available at the door. Cash, check or charge.

The meal is simple’soup, bread and a cookie. Guests can choose and keep a soup bowl handcrafted for this community event. The bowl goes home as an unspoken reminder that somewhere someone’s bowl is empty.

Empty Bowl events are held nationally to generate awareness concerning hunger and to raise money for local hunger-relief programs. Proceeds from this event benefit The Open Door Summer Lunch and The Open Door Mobile Market.
