Greene County Empty Bowls

The Waynesburg University Bonner Scholars have presented the Greene County Empty Bowls event for the past four years.  All proceeds benefit the Greene County Weekend Food Program.

Each attendee receives unlimited soup and bread, and a handmade ceramic bowl to take home. (Children 12 and under eat free but do not receive a ceramic bowl.)

Tickets can be purchased in advance by check or cash.  Donations can also be made after the event if you can’t attend the event.

All checks should be made out to: “Community Foundation of Greene County” and note “Empty Bowl Tickets” on the memo line if you’re attending the event or “Empty Bowls Donation” if you can’t attend the event.

Last year Empty Bowls Greene County raised over $6000 for the Weekend Food Program.
The five school districts need about $25,000 annually to serve about 140 children!  Your support helps ensure funds are available to continue the program each year.
