Empty Bowls

Thank you to our 2019 Sponsors!


Mark your calendar for the Inns of the Gettysburg Area Christmas House Tour which will be held on December 14th, 2019. All proceeds from that tour benefit South Central Community Action Programs. Thank you for embodying hospitality for visitors and residents alike!


For the 6th year in a row, The Gleaning Project is proud to present Empty Bowls.

Friday April 5th
Gettysburg College, Plank Gymnasium
$20 suggested donation

Local artists donate beautiful ceramic bowls, local restaurants donate soup, and over 400 community members attend the event. At the end of the event, attendees take home their bowl to serve as a reminder of the 1 in 5 children and seniors in Adams County  who lack access to enough food to lead healthy active lifestyles.

Empty Bowls has introduced hundreds of volunteers to The Gleaning Project and raised over $25,000 since 2015 to support this important work.


In 2018, 9,200 individuals were able to access 155,000 pounds of free fresh, local produce that The Gleaning Project and our partners distributed in Adams County.
