Sunday, March 6 is the 16th annual Empty Bowls dinner to benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. This is a simple meal of bread and soup. Tickets are $20 per person but that includes a bowl that has been handmade by local artists and volunteers. (I think we made bowls in my high school ceramics class for the very first empty bowls dinner).
Last year over 1500 people turned out for the annual dinner – read more about the 2010 empty bowls dinner here in the Post-Gazette and here in Pittsburgh Magazine – this article includes lots of great photos of the bowls too.
