April 12: Empty Bowls: a benefit hosted by Mudflat Studio A handmade bowl. A hearty meal. A way to help.
Admission to our first-ever Empty Bowls benefit included a handmade ceramic bowl for guests to fill with as many helpings of soup as they wished—before taking it home to keep! Bowls were hand-crafted and donated by Mudflat artisans and students. (They made and donated over 500 bowls, most of which were gone by the end of the night! Wow!) Soup, bread, and beverages were provided by many well-loved local establishments, including: Cafe Luna | Cuisine En Locale | Craigie On Main | East End Grille | The Garden at the Cellar | The Hong Kong | Trader Joe's Fresh Pond | UNO Harvard Square | Vinny's at Night and more! Raffle donors included: Atwood's | Boston Organics | The Comedy Studio | Craigie On Main | The Garden at the Cellar We were serenaded by live music from: ALEMBIC: harp and violin duo playing mystic-folk and medieval sounds for the modern city Tony Leva: bassist about town, with Jamie Mallari (guitar and voice) and Valerie Thompson (cello)
Your ticket donation has helped Food For Free fill the bowls of your neighbors in need with fresh, healthy food—we expect to deliver over a million pounds next year, as we did last year. Thank you! P.S. We want to see your SOUP SELFIES! SHARE your Empty Bowls pics with us here:
