Ipswich Empty Bowl Dinner

 Proceeds from the Open Door Empty Bowl dinner benefit community programs.

The Open Door and the Ipswich Lions Club team up to host an evening of food and hospitality. The meal is simple—soup, bread and a cookie. Guests can choose and keep a soup bowl handcrafted for this community event. The bowl goes home as an unspoken reminder that “somewhere - someone’s bowl is empty” Tickets available at the door, costing $15 for adults and $10 for children under 10. Empty Bowl events are held nationally to generate awareness concerning hunger and to raise money for local hunger-relief programs. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Ipswich Open Door Food Pantry.

Thursday, November 3, 2016 4 - 8pm.
