18th Annual Empty Bowls

Thank you for another successful year with our 18th Anniversary of Empty Bowls which took place on March 8, 2023 at the Americana Conference Centre in Niagara Falls. 

About the Event

During this annual fundraising event, guests enjoy samples of gourmet soup prepared by Niagara’s finest chefs and served in one-of-a-kind bowls created by local potters. Included as the perfect complement are Niagara wines, beer, cider, fresh breads and decadent desserts.

Guests take home the empty bowl as a continuous reminder of those who struggle to meet basic living needs in our very own community.
