Help fight hunger at Haven from Hunger's Empty Bowl Dinner:

  • Choose from hundreds of unique bowls hand-decorated by community members,
  • Enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread, and
  • Take the bowl home as a reminder of the fight against hunger in our communities.

Minimum suggested donation: $15 for adults | $10 under 10.
Tickets available online at www.emptybowl.eventbrite.com or at the door.

Come as you are! It's a casual event for the whole community.

Empty Bowl events are held nationally to generate awareness about hunger and to raise funds for local hunger-relief organizations. This event will raise funds for Haven from Hunger's hunger-relief programs, which include a food pantry for residents of Peabody, Salem, and Lynnfield. In 2016, our food pantry distributed more than a million pounds of free groceries to people in need.

The Empty Bowl will feature delicious soups donated by local restuarants, including Mike and Lill's Black Sheep Pub & Grill, British Beer Company, Brothers Restaurant & Deli (Peabody), Century House Restaurant, and Spinelli's, and by students in Peabody High School's culinary program.
