A Drive-Thru Event
Empty Bowl TO GO
A new twist on an old tradition. Join The Open Door to mark the 20th Anniversary of this beloved community event. Empty Bowl TO GO is by appointment only with a drive-thru experience at The Open Door in Gloucester.
For each ticket you reserve, you will receive:
1. A beautiful bowl made with love, randomly selected and prepackaged for you.
2. Homemade soup—chowder, chicken, vegan or gluten-free—ready to reheat.
3. Bread, cookie and a bottle of water to round out your meal.
The bowl goes home as a reminder that somewhere, someone's bowl is empty.
