30th Annual Empty Bowl Soup Supper 


Bowl & Soup Pick Up for All Ticket Holders and Sponsors will be on Saturday, November 20th from 10am to 3pm at the Friends of the North Fork, 305 W Court Street in Woodstock.

Our 30th Annual Empty Bowl Soup Supper is staying virtual again this year to maintain your safety during the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis. 

This year's virtual ticket will provide you with a beautifully packaged, locally crafted pottery bowl, which will again be a surprise as to which potter's bowl you will receive!  To help you fill your empty bowl you will receive a choice of soup to heat and enjoy in the comfort of your own home. 

Soup will be first come first serve, and the choices are as follows:

Potato by Shaffer's Catering & Deli

Tomato Basil by Spring House Tavern

Chicken Noodle by JimBo Stout 

Thai Curry Coconut Chicken by Swover Creek

Mediterranean Tomato Rice by Penelope's Cafe

Beef Barley by Triplett Tech Culinary Arts 


There are limited bowls, so purchase as soon as possible to ensure you receive one of this year's unique designs. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 29th and end Friday November 19th, or until sold out.
