Open Door Empty Bowl Dinner is right around the corner

Hey Joey,

The Open Door Empty Bowl Dinner is right around the corner on Thursday, May 8, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Cruiseport Gloucester. Can you let GMG readers know that they are invited to join us for an evening of food and hospitality?

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.

Extra parking is available at Harbor Beach with complimentary trolley service to and from the event site. Tickets available at the door. $15 for adults and $10 for children under ten.

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

Attached are a couple of photos of Silent Auction bowls that will be available that night!

  • Will try to make it to this one, it is tough as I work in Wellesley and it starts pretty early, but will make every effort to attend, love the Open Door and love the bowls.
