Chestnut Hill College, in partnership with the Northwest Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network (NPIHN), will host the NPIHN 20th Anniversary Empty Bowl Dinner on Wednesday, November 14, with two seatings at 4:30-6 p.m. and 6:30-8 p.m. The K Ten Kids Foundation, Elfant Wissahickon Realtors, Pepsi, Prudential Fox and Roach, People Helping People Inc., sitiCare, The Goldenberg Group, and Chestnut Hill Hospital will sponsor this year’s dinner. The 14th Annual Empty Bowl Dinner, a popular event at the College and with the surrounding community, combines the warmth of community and a hearty meal for the purpose of raising money in support of the NPIHN’s mission to mobilize resources and volunteers in direct response to the needs of neighbors who have lost their homes. For a small fee, diners can select a hand-crafted bowl and enjoy fare from restaurants and bakeries in the Philadelphia area. At the end of the evening, diners take home their empty bowl as a reminder that every night in the City of Philadelphia more than 1,000 children go without a meal or a place to call home. Tickets are $20 for adults, $8 for students and children, and can be purchased in advance at www.philashelter.org.
