Empty Bowls Luncheon

sponsored by Corning Headquarters

Thursday, December 12, 2019  °  11:45 am – 1:00 pm
 Headquarters Cafe 


The annual Empty Bowls Luncheon hosted by Corning Incorporated Headquarters is a fundraising event to raise awareness and funds for the Food Bank of the Southern Tier.

This event benefits those in our community who often don’t have enough to eat. Each ticket sold will provide 75 meals to our neighbors in need. 

For a donation of $25, you can enjoy a lunch of soup, salad, bread, dessert, and beverage (vegetarian options included) in the Corning Headquarters Cafe. You will leave with a handmade ceramic bowl generously donated from area artisans from 171 Cedar Arts Center, and the Clay School in Ithaca.

Any questions can be directed to the event coordinator Jim Matthews at  607.974.7608 or
