Please join us for an evening in support of Second Harvest Food Bank. The night will include an intimate concert performed by the Jen Chapin Duo, an informal meal prepared and served by Sodexo, and a silent auction of beautiful artisan bowls and other items.  Empty Bowls helps Second Harvest raise the funds needed to carry out its mission to end hunger in Northeast Pennsylvania.

 The meal, a buffet dinner of three varieties of chili, chicken pot pie, salad, and an assortment of breads and desserts, is meant to be a simple feast prepared using ingredients similar to that which a client might receive at an emergency food pantry or soup kitchen. Over the years, the chili has become such a favorite amongst guests that take-home quarts are now made available for purchase after the meal.

Throughout the evening, guests will have the opportunity to place bids in a silent auction of artisan bowls and artwork donated by local artists and patrons as well as a number additional items including goods, services, and gift certificates from area retailers.

A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available; each includes tickets to the event.  Individual tickets can be purchased for $75 each.  All proceeds benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.  For more information regarding sponsorship, or to request an invitation, please contact Second Harvest at 484-287-4015.
