Empty Bowls

Gleaners Food Bank & Quinte Regional Rural Food Banks, work collectively to launch this special fundraising event. Our partnership with Loyalist College & The Loyalist College Culinary Program enables this event to happen.

Empty Bowls is a campaign to increase an awareness of hunger in this region. Ceramic bowls, made and donated by local potters and Quinte Wood Turners, will be available. All funds raised help to feed the hungry in Food Banks located in Hastings, Prince Edward and Lennox & Addington Counties.

Local Potters would be asked to donate 100-150 bowls for the event. The potters would have the opportunity to showcase and sell their craft. Both Potters & Wood Turners who donate bowls or cups receive a COMPLIMENTARY table to sell their crafts. The potters would also receive a tax receipts for the bowls they donate. We also invite local crafters to join the event. This year we will also hold a Silent Auction.

Loyalist College Culinary Program & Local Chefs would be asked to create gourmet soup for the event. In return, Empty Bowls Event would advertise their program and Restaurant’s participation.

Empty Bowls The public would be given the opportunity to help the food banks by receiving a hand crafted bowl filled with gourmet soup. We also serve refreshments and dessert.

Hunger is a major issue so we ask that you please help us try to resolve it. Each bowl is a reminder that hunger should not happen!

Your participation would accomplish much to alleviate hunger throughout the region. Please consider donating your time and talents to this great cause. Please call 613 962-9043 for further details.
