The Open Door will hold its annual Empty Bowl Dinner on Thursday, May 8, 2014 from 4-8 pm at Cruiseport Gloucester. Share in a simple meal of soup, bread and a cookie and take the dinner bowl home as a reminder of someone in need of a meal. Empty Bowl events are held nationally to generate awareness concerning hunger and to raise money for local hunger-relief programs.
Bowls have been painted with care by members of the North Shore community over the last several months. A silent auction will be open from 4-8 p.m.
The Empty Bowl Dinner in 2013 was attended by more than 1,000 people. A lot of money was raised to help local families in need and it was a nice way to spend a Thursday night dinner with your community.
If you would like to make bowls for this event, please contact Marty Morgan.
