This year’s Empty Bowl Dinner will be Thursday, October 12th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Elley-Long Music Center in Colchester.


If you have questions, please contact Jett Choquette at or (802) 864-7423 x330.


At the Empty Bowl Dinner we celebrate how, together, we can help youth and families in our community turn their lives around.

Held each October, the Empty Bowl Dinner brings together 250 guests who choose a handmade ceramic bowl to keep and fill with soups donated from several local restaurants. The event includes a giving board where you can “buy” program items directly for Spectrum’s clients, such as bus passes, school books, or winter clothes.
