The Open Door Empty Bowl Dinner May 12 at Cruiseport Gloucester

Hi Joey,
We would really appreciate it if you would let GMG readers know they can mark their calendars for The Open Door’s annual Empty Bowl Dinner on Thursday, May 12, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Cruiseport Gloucester.

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.  We have some really great soups this year, and the bowls are some of the best I have ever seen.

As usual, parking is available at Cruiseport or people can park at Good Harbor Beach and take the trolley service provided by CATA to and from the event site.

Tickets this year are $15 ($10 for children under 10) and available at the door. Cash, check or charge accepted.

All proceeds from this event benefit The Open Door Summer Lunch and The Open Door Mobile Market.

For more information call, 978-283-6776, or visit www.foodpantry.org.
