Trumansburg, NY – Trumansburg's Empty Bowls Fundraiser at Atlas Bowl will kick off this year's campaign to benefit the Trumansburg – Ulysses Food Pantry on Sunday March 11 from 1-3pm. A donation of $25 will buy a handmade bowl made by Salmon Pottery and Trumansburg High School ceramics students. Guests can then fill their new bowls with hearty soups from Good To Go and other local restaurants, and bring them home to keep as a reminder of all the empty bowls around the world.

The Empty Bowls project started in 1990 as a single meal and has spread around the world to raise tens of millions of dollars for anti-hunger organizations. Local organizations sponsor and organize events which bring together potters to create the bowls and cooks to prepare hearty fare and members of the community to help raise money. The Trumansburg event is a community-sponsored fundraiser organized by Atlas Bowl, Good To Go and Salmon Pottery in coordination with the Food Pantry.

There will be a silent auction and raffles for items donated by community members and businesses. Anyone wishing to donate to the raffle can contact Lynne Bursic (lynnebursic@gmail.com). Atlas Bowl is offering half price bowling during the event, and there will be a cash bar. Tickets (which come with two free raffle tickets if purchased in advance) are available at Good To Go, 21 East Main Street, Trumansburg until March 10, and there will be a table at ShurSave for ticket sales on Saturday, March 3, from 11am until 1pm.
