Ipswich Empty Bowl Dinner

The Open Door and the Ipswich Lions Club team up to host an evening of food and hospitality. The meal is simple—soup, bread and a cookie. Guests can choose and keep a soup bowl handcrafted for this community event. The bowl goes home as an unspoken reminder that “somewhere - someone’s bowl is empty” Tickets available at the door, costing $15 for adults and $10 for children under 10. Empty Bowl events are held nationally to generate awareness concerning hunger and to raise money for local hunger-relief programs. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Ipswich Open Door Food Pantry.
