Community Empty Bowl Dinner May 2

     The third annual Tamaqua Community Empty Bowl Dinner Wednesday, May 2, is open for lunch and dinner from noon to 7 p.m. The event is part of 2018 Tamaqua Hunger Walk activities which benefit the three community food banks that serve nearly 300 local families.

     An Empty Bowl Dinner brings together restaurants, artists, bakeries, faith communities and neighbors to raise funds to help those in need in our community. Zion Lutheran Church at Mauch Chunk and Greenwood streets in Tamaqua is hosting the dinner.

     Thirty Tamaqua area restaurants and businesses have been invited to participate by donating soup, bread or desserts. Last year’s Empty Bowl Dinner featured soups from 11 local restaurants.

     Participants have three options. The Soup Pass ($5) allows the holder to select one bowl of soup. A Super Soup Pass ($10) allows the holder to sample all of the soups and the Super Soup Bowl Pass ($15) allows the holder to sample all of the soups and select one of the hand-crafted bowls available. All passes include bread, dessert and beverage. Only 50 Super Soup Bowl passes are available.

     Some very special bowls will also be given away.

     In the past, soups have included chili, chicken patina, Italian wedding soup, stuffed pepper soup, chicken tortilla, ham and bean, cream of potato and tomato soup.

     For more information about the dinner call 570-668-4451 or email gtay200@verizon.net or visit Zion’s Facebook page.
