A SCCAP Community Solution

Join The Gleaning Project of South Central PA at the Adams County Arts Council on Nov. 19th from 12-2pm for a seasonal apple treat served to you in a handmade ceramic bowl. 

Take your empty bowl home with you at the end of the event to remember those whose bowls remain empty in our community.

Help us raise awareness about food insecurity, and raise funds for The Gleaning Project’s efforts to make good use of agricultural excess, reduce hunger, and improve nutrition in Adams County.

Our Fall Empty Bowls event is in collaboration with the Winter Farmers Market at the Adams County Arts Council. Bring a few extra bucks to purchase fresh fruits and veggies from our local farmers.

Tickets are $10, and include a handmade ceramic bowl filled with homemade apple crisp. First come first serve.

All proceeds benefit The Gleaning Project of South Central PA
Supported by Adams County Arts Council, The Adams County Food Policy Council and South Central Community Action Programs, Inc.

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.
