Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser

A SCCAP Community Solution

What is Empty Bowls?

Empty Bowls is an international grassroots movement and fundraiser that aims to: 

  • RAISE AWARENESS about hunger related issues

  • RAISE MONEY for hunger related organizations

  • ADVOCATE for community involvement

Artists donate bowls and restaurants donate food for a simple community meal. In exchange for a suggested donation, guests choose a bowl to eat out of and to take home as a reminder of those whose bowls remain empty.

How can I get involved?

Get pumped for Empty Bowls 2017!

Join us on April 22, 2017, 5-7pm at Gettysburg College's Plank Gymnasium for a locally sourced soup and bread dinner served to you in a unique hand made bowl of your choosing. Tickets are only $20, and all proceeds benefit The Gleaning Project. First come first serve. Cash or check only.
