6th Annual Empty Bowl Benefit at the Mud Studio to take place March 10th

Empty BowlMiddlesex, Vermont – Hearty, homemade soup served in handcrafted bowls are the highlight of the Sixth Annual Empty Bowl Benefit, a fundraiser for the Vermont Foodbank, on Sunday, March 10 at the Mud Studio in Middlesex from 4:30-6:30 PM.

With hundreds of bowls made each year by area potters, the Empty Bowl Benefit has become a celebration of the caring community of central Vermonters gathered for one winter night among the potters’ wheels to enjoy an evening of camaraderie, live fiddle music, a silent auction of locally-made crafts, and a steaming bowl of soup, all to help our neighbors in need.

“With one in four Vermonters struggling with hunger, the need is dire in our community,” said benefit organizer Bonnie Seideman.  “Nobody in the year 2019 should have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, or if their children will be unable to sleep because their bellies are empty.”

This year’s benefit features fabulous soups prepared by many favorite local restaurants and caterers, including Black Krim Tavern, Bon Temps Gourmet, Hunger Mt. Coop, and J. Morgan’s.  Accompaniments are fresh, crusty Red Hen bread, tangy Vermont Creamery cheese, flavorful hummus from North Branch Café, home-baked desserts and crisp Cold Hollow Cider.

For a $25 donation to the Foodbank, guests not only enjoy a delicious meal, but get to select a bowl of their choice to take home.   Last year’s Empty Bowl Benefit raised $10,000 or 16,000 meals for the most vulnerable Vermonters, including many children and elders.  So come on down to enjoy it all and support the amazing work of the Vermont Foodbank.
