Join us to fill empty bowls with hope! Empty Bowls is the signature event for Urban Ministries of Durham, the private, non-sectarian downtown charity that provides food, shelter and a future to neighbors in need, ending homelessness for 289 people in a single year. At Empty Bowls 2015, you’ll have the chance to sample soups prepared by the following local restaurants and vote for your favorites. Local artists and artisans are making hundreds of handcrafted bowls, and with certain tickets, you can select one to take home. The family-friendly evening (kids 6 and under admitted free for soup only) includes a live band and the chance to learn more about the important work Urban Ministries of Durham does to feed, clothe and shelter our neighbors.
