Empty Bowls 2021

Welcome to the 1st Empty Bowls at Home Fundraiser!

We have some exciting news! As we continue to face challenges with COVID-19, we decided to come up with a new fundraiser that will be a lot of fun for everyone! Welcome to the 1st Empty Bowls at Home Fundraiser!




If you are familiar with our Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser, you would know that this year would have been our 16th Event Anniversary. Last year, our event was attended by more than 500 people and together we raised $61,000 in net proceeds in support of Affordable Housing and Support Services in Niagara.

We are working hard to make this year’s fundraiser an even bigger success and we are hoping for your support. This year we bring you and your family something new and exciting to enjoy from the comfort of your own home! The 1st Empty Bowls at Home Fundraiser. 

How does it work?

We will be providing soup making kits that include all the perfectly portioned non-perishable items. Included in the kit will be; local wine, bread, dessert, and other fun surprises to be announced here daily!

Our Bowl-Less Kits will include your one choice of soup, bread, wine, dessert, and other fun surprises to be announced in the coming weeks! Bowl-Less Soup Kits will not include bowls. Following the purchase of your kit, you will receive an email to choose your soup! Only 1 soup per kit.
