According to a recent press release, Empty Bowls “has raised millions of dollars since it began in 1991. The basic concept is to gather as a community and eat a simple meal of homemade soup and bread.”
The following restaurants are donating their homemade soup to the event:
– The Albert
– Dulce Vegan Bakery & Café
– Kirkyard Public House
– Matador Mexican Cantina
– My Parents’ Basement
– Petit Chou
– Poor Hendrix
– The Pullman
– Verde Taqueria
– The Vortex L5P
Empty Bowls ATL will be held at Kirkwood United Church of Christ, located at 100 Rogers Street in Atlanta.
Event parking is available at Toomer Elementary School, located close to the church at 65 Rodgers Street.
Tickets are $40, which include dinner and a handmade bowl donated by Atlanta Clay Works. All of the event proceeds will be donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
