Please join us in the fight to end hunger! Your support is needed for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank’s annual Soup and a Bowl Event. This year’s events will be held Friday, March 2, 2018, at the Genetti Hotel with seating starting at 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM, and 4:30 PM.  

Tickets can be purchased online or by calling the Williamsport office at 570-321-8023.

Today, 1 in 9 of our neighbors struggles to put enough food on their table. The Soup & a Bowl event is intended to serve as a reminder of the numerous unfilled bowls of those who struggle with hunger in our community. 

A simple meal of soup and bread, paired with a take-home pottery bowl, serve as a reminder of the historical food offerings at soup kitchens.

Join us to warm your body and soul.
