Empty Bowl – March 7, 2015

Please Join Us for the Ninth Annual Empty Bowl March 7 at Peace Lutheran Church Nevada County potters have been creating their masterful bowls for months now, and here at Hospitality House we’re making arrangements for our ninth annual Empty Bowl benefit. For those who have never been, Empty Bowl is an event where community members gather to share a simple meal of bread, dessert, and soup, which they consume from a beautiful handmade bowl they have selected from hundreds donated by local potters (and some not so local). This year, as usual, Empty Bowl will take place at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main St. in Grass Valley on Saturday, March 7.

There will be two seatings: one between noon and 2:00, and one between 5:00 and 7:00. There is no need for the 12 o’clock stampede this year, as we put out new bowls constantly from a plentiful supply, and divide the bowls equally between the afternoon and evening seatings. A wide selection of soups, bread, and desserts are donated by generous local chefs, restaurants, and bakeries. This year students in Hospitality House Serves, our own culinary job-training program, will also be contributing a variety of delicious soups. Tickets cost $25 and are available online below and at BriarPatch Community Co-Op, The BookSeller in Grass Valley, and at the door. Children 12 and under may come in free but will not receive a handmade bowl unless they have a ticket. Empty Bowl was created as a way to express our solidarity with people who are poor, hungry, and homeless. It’s an important annual fundraiser for Hospitality House that enables the work of providing shelter, nourishing meals, medical care, case management, and housing placement to go forward. We look forward to seeing you there!
