Help end homelessness and reduce the impact of poverty across the Niagara region at the 13th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser for Bethlehem!
Niagara’s finest chefs prepare and serve their favourite gourmet soup in one-of-a-kind bowls created by local potters. Included as the perfect complement are local Niagara wines and beer, specialty teas, fresh bread and delicious sweets. There were over 350 guests and 22 food and beverage vendors at the 2017 Empty Bowls. A People’s Choice and Platinum Ladle award for best soup is presented to one of Niagara’s many talented chefs at the end of the evening.
Guests take their empty bowl home as a reminder of those who struggle to meet basic living needs and secure affordable housing throughout our community. Last year, Empty Bowls raised over $30,000 for programming at Bethlehem Housing and Support Services!
This event is hosted by Bethlehem Housing and Support Services.
