Attendees will have an opportunity to choose from more than 100 bowls painted by members of the CSW community, while raising awareness about hunger in Middlesex County. Empty Bowls features group and individual student performances and bowlable soups and stews donated by local restaurants, CSW parents and CSW faculty. Food donations are appreciated; suggested items include pasta, noodles, rice, breads, soup, salads, desserts or other items. All food, along with a detailed list of ingredients, may be dropped off on February 15 in the Garthwaite between 2:30 and 5:30 pm.

Raffles for museum passes, artwork, sports memorabilia, game tickets, gift cards and other items will help raise additional funds to support Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen.
Last year, the event raised more than $3,000, which was used to provide about 2,400 meals to working families in the Waltham area, according to Michael Hannon, Bristol Lodge Director of Food Service. Each year, Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen provides its families close to 133,000 pounds of food.
