The 2018 Empty Bowl Dinner:

  • Date: Thursday, October 4, 2018 | 5:30pm – 7:30pm
  • Location: Grand Maple Ballroom, Davis Center, UVM, 590 Main Street, Burlington

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 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.
