Chestnut Hill College proudly hosts the 13th annual Empty Bowl Dinner to benefit Northwest Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network (NPIHN). With the help of over 1200 volunteers, this fundraising event advances NPIHN's mission to find lasting solutions to family homelessness and its underlying causes. Come enjoy family-friendly activities and live entertainment!
For a modest donation, guests receive a free handcrafted bowl, and enjoy an all-you -can -eat feast of fresh soups, breads and desserts. At the end of their meal, each attendee leaves with their empty bowl as a reminder that every night in the city of Philadelphia 1,000 children go without a meal or a place to call "home."
Please park at Our Mother of Consolation Church, 9 East Chestnut Hill Ave.
