Event Description



The Food Bank and Just Harvest have chosen to postpone this Sunday’s Empty Bowls Dinner at Rodef Shalom. This decision was made due to the growing concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). In light of the ongoing public health concern, after consulting with Rodef Shalom, out of an abundance of caution we’ve decided to take preventative measures to avoid mass gatherings and observe social distancing. Both organizations will monitor the status of COVID-19 in southwestern Pennsylvania and decide on a date to reschedule Empty Bowls once the virus does not pose a threat to our community. Tickets already purchased for Empty Bowls will be honored at the rescheduled event. 




The annual Empty Bowls dinner serves up a simple meal of soup and bread as a reminder that too many people throughout our region are facing hunger with “empty bowls”. This year’s event benefiting Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Just Harvest will feature artisan pottery for guests to take home, soups from local restaurants, children’s activities and an auction featuring artwork and celebrity-autographed bowls.

There are two times to join us:

  • 1 - 3:30 p.m.

  • 4 - 6 p.m.

Regular Adult Admission tickets can be purchased in advance for $20 and $25 at the door. "Soup to Go Fast Passes" are also available for $20 in advance and at the door.

Children's tickets (3 to 12 years of age) can be purchased for $10 in advance and at the door.

Proceeds benefit Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Just Harvest.
