In the last couple of years, Empty Bowls (EB) has had to undergo some transformations. 2020 EB was virtual due to Covid. Our main potters from SU and Clayscapes…Peter Beasecker and Dr. David McDonald volunteered to donate their wonderful pottery to sell online, donating the proceeds to Interreligious Food Consortium (IFC).


2021 we were allowed to have an in-person event at the Nancy Cantor Warehouse….but not indoors. Instead, a large tent was set up in the back of the building and we were able to socially distance and have folks look over and purchase the bowls. There was no soup allowed. Cazenovia College provided glass bowls to sell which was an added bonus. Despite the brisk wind which challenged our tent and decorations we were able to sell many bowls and make many new IFC friends.


Now it’s 2022—we are formulating our plan for the Empty Bowls

Friday, September 30th from 11 am to 1 pm

inside the Nancy Cantor Warehouse: 350 West Fayette St. 13202


This is our current plan with approval from Syracuse University to be able to serve soup from local restaurants. There will be beautiful bowls to give as special gifts or keep for yourselves. This is our biggest and only fundraiser so we hope you will come.
