About YWCA Empty Bowls

Join us at The Venue on Friday, March 1st, 12 noon - 1:30 pm

Delivery & Early Bird Options: 11:30 am

The idea for YWCA Empty Bowls is simple: guests receive a delicious lunch, generously prepared and donated by local restaurants and businesses, and select either:

  • a beautiful, hand-crafted bowl, created and donated by local artisans of the Kawartha Potters Guild, Kawartha Wood Turners Guild and Artisans Centre Peterborough, or
  • a charitable tax receipt.

Guests are given the option to dine-in at The Venue or to have their lunch delivered (sold out), making it easy and convenient for everyone to take part. A limited number of Early Bird tickets (sold out), provide exclusive access at 11:30 am for best selection of lunch options and bowls.

All proceeds from YWCA Empty Bowls directly support YWCA JustFood and Nourish, food programs that look at the root causes of poverty, promote equity and provide connection through food. 

Tickets are now SOLD OUT - a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone involved!
