Empty Bowls for Haiti
Ontario potters donate the bowls, local restaurants and organizations donate the soup and you keep the bowl! The 2020 Empty Bowls for Haiti event has an alternative format this year. Here’s how it works:
· Purchase your ticket online to secure your uniquely potted bowl.
· Pick up your bowl at Dundee Pottery between October 17th and October 31st. You’ll be given a soup voucher to redeem at one of our participating restaurants.
· Visit one of the restaurants (either dine-in or take out) with your soup voucher to fill your bowl with delicious, warm soup. *
*Voucher valid until November 30, 2020. Dine-in options only available with additional food orders.
This event supports MCC Ontario and its commitment to sustainable change in Haiti.
Tickets will be available to purchase beginning September 1.
