Empty Bowls Montreal 2012: We're baaack!!

Sunday, April 22, 2012 

one of Congregation Dorshei Emet’s best-loved fundraisers, 
is RETURNING SOON to a shul (or church) near you! 
(If you live in Montreal, that is... )

Empty Bowls is an international project to fight hunger. Each community develops their own ideas and methods to help fill bowls--and tummies!

In our case, for a $20 donation, hand made bowls are sold at our lunch events which feature free soup, bread, and (sometimes!) fruit. 

Everything is donated and 100 per cent of the proceeds go to charities selected by our Empty Bowls Committees. 

Past recipients include our own Hanukkah Food Basket Fund, the Generations Foundation, Multicaf, the NDG Food Depot, Santropol Roulant and other worthy projects. 

As in previous years, Dorshei Emet's (the Reconstructionist Synagogue) Empty Bowls committee has teamed up with our sister organization at the Unitarian Church for mutual support (their event will be held Saturday April 14th). 

Stay tuned for details, recipes, sponsor information, and the like. And thanks for everyone who has supported us and continues to do so. With your help, we've  made a difference to Montrealers!
