10th Annual Empty Bowls is a Sharing Experience

UHS will participate with other groups across the country in April by hosting another popular "Empty Bowls" luncheon. For a $25 donation, you can enjoy a hearty lunch of soup, salad, bread and dessert, take home a fabulous handcrafted pottery bowl, and benefit those in the community who often don't have enough to eat.

This year’s Empty Bowls will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Wednesday April 2 at UHS Wilson Medical Center, Picciano 4, Room 5ABC, and Thursday April 3 at UHS Binghamton General Hospital, Russell Room.

Proceeds benefit community residents through the Food Bank of the Southern Tier and the UHS Foundation’s Stop Hunger Fund.

UHS is a locally owned, not-for-profit, 916-bed hospital and healthcare system serving Greater Binghamton and surrounding counties. Founded in 1981, UHS provides a full range of medical, surgical, rehabilitative and long-term care services from more than 60 locations around New York’s Southern Tier.
