Your table awaits you at the Empty Bowls Dinner - May 1

Dear Friends,

In just one week, our community will come together in support of the Franklin Food Pantry in our fight to end hunger. The 3rd Annual Empty Bowls Dinner on Tuesday, May 1 is a family-friendly event that raises funds and awareness for the Franklin Food Pantry as we work towards a hunger-free community. Here are some highlights of the event:
  • Delicious soups donated by Whole Foods Market and 3 Restaurant, topped off with some fresh bread and a little something for your sweet tooth
  • Kids can make a bowl to take home as part of ArtWeek, Franklin
  • All participants are given a handmade ceramic bowl as a reminder that "somewhere, someone's bowl is empty"
  • On site giving opportunities such as a Silent Auction of beautiful ceramic bowls, and a Giving Wall where you can purchase a bag of groceries for a Franklin family 
Stop by the Franklin High School cafeteria any time between 6 - 8 p.m. and join us for a bowl of soup. At 6:45 p.m., I will give a brief talk about how some of our families in Franklin are struggling with hunger. 

Your table awaits you

This very speciaevening is made possible through a wonderful collaboration with the Franklin High School Empty Bowls Club. It reflects the hard work of a dedicated and passionate group of EB Club members, district K-12 art teachers, their students and Franklin community members. 

We will be selling 350 tickets through our website on a first-come, first-served basis. You can buy your tickets now online. There are also sponsorship opportunities available for groups and corporations. 
Thank you so much for your support. I hope you can join us!
