About event
Join Shenandoah Alliance on Friday, November 17th, 2023, at Central High School (1147 Susan Avenue, Woodstock, VA 22664) for our 32nd Annual Empty Bowl Soup Supper. 

The Empty Bowl is our largest and most mission focused fundraiser of the year.  Symbolizing the struggle of food insecurity, it serves as a reminder of the many families we serve who have literal empty bowls due to rising housing costs.  Across the state of Virginia, rental costs have increased 24% in the last 10 years, while income rates have remained stagnant.  With many families not earning livable wages, they find themselves housing cost burdened (spending more than 30% of their monthly income on housing costs) and unable to cover basic expenses such as utility costs.  Shenandoah Alliance is able to provide necessary financial assistance and strength based counseling to these households to help them maintain their housing with the help of fundraisers like the Empty Bowl. 

 Ticket prices are $40.00 per Adult & $20.00 per Student (18 & under)
Doors open at 5:30PM
Bowls are available first come, first serve! 
Be sure to get in line early if you are hoping for a specific bowl! 

Your ticket includes a hand-thrown bowl of your choice to take home, tickets for two bowls of soup, assorted rolls, cookies, & beverage options.

Join in the fun of the Silent Auction with many great choices from local business, restaurants and crafters, participate in the competition to win the best baked good during the Bake Shop Dessert Auction, and enjoy the fellowship of sharing a simple meal with old friends & new.
