The Open Door Empty Bowl Dinner

Join The Open Door for an evening of food and hospitality at the 17th Annual Empty Bowl Dinner and celebrate a beloved North Shore tradition on Thursday, May 11, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Cruiseport Gloucester.

The meal is simple—soup, bread and a cookie. Guests can choose and keep a special soup bowl created for this community event. The bowl goes home as an unspoken reminder that somewhere someone’s bowl is empty.

Tickets available at the door. $15 for adults and $10 for children under ten. Extra parking is available at Harbor Beach with complimentary trolley service to and from the event site.

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 Open Door Summer Meals and Mobile Market programs.
