Empty Bowls 2024

Save the Date

Wednesday, March 27, 2024  |  5:30 – 8:00 PM  |  Waterfire Arts Center

Handmade bowls and gourmet bites: A tasty way to give back. Tickets go on sale on February 14th including a special, early-bird ticket price.

The concept is simple: guests choose a handmade bowl, enjoy delicious restaurant tastings, and go home with their bowl as a reminder that their support helps us fill all the empty bowls in our community. Funds raised from Empty Bowls will help the Food Bank provide food assistance to 80,000 Rhode Islanders each month.
