Empty Bowls: A Benefit for the Rhode Island Community Food Bank

Thursday, October 22, 2020

Rhodes on the Pawtuxet

This special event brings together hundreds of local artists, over 35 local restaurants, and nearly 1,000 members of the community to envision a world without hunger, where all bowls are filled.

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.
