Quebec potters and Dorshei Emet fight hunger
For the second year, Dorshei  Emet Synogogue invites the public to participate in Empty Bowls, a hunger-fighting fundraiser that brings people together for a simple but nourishing meal of soup, bread and fruit. The vegetarian soup is served in a hand-made bowl donated by a renowned Quebec potter, which is yours to keep for a $20 donation per adult. Children under 12 can eat for a $5 donation.
This year, Empty Bowls will benefit from the generosity and talent of Diane Demers, Dominique Didier and their friends from Atelier Tour à Tour in St-Patrice-de-Beaurivage who organized a bowl-a-thon and produced 270 beautiful bowls for this event.
Last year, all bowls were sold within three hours, raising $7,500. Visitors had a great time. In addition to raising awareness of hunger, 100% of proceeds collected will be shared by Generations Foundation, which provides hot meals to children in Montreal schools, Mazon Canada which allocates donations from the Jewish community to prevent and alleviate hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds, and Dorshei Emet Hanukkah Food Basket Fund that provides food to local families at holiday time.
Empty Bowls depends entirely on the generosity of donors, sponsors and volunteers. More than 60 potters from Quebec have responded to the call, donating hundreds of beautiful bowls. This year again, soup has been generously donated by Caterer Howard Fleisher of Kosher Cravings; it will be served with bread and fruit. Musical entertainment will add to the pleasure of the event to which dozens of volunteers are contributing their time, efforts and talents.
The Empty Bowls Fundraiser takes place on Sunday, April 22  from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Congregation Dorshei Emet, 18 Cleve Rd, in Hampstead.
