What's New at The Family Pantry of Cape Cod

Director's Chair

I know it is March, but never fear spring is almost here.  Plans for the sixth annual Family Pantry Gala are underway, the seed catalogs for the garden are arriving and many of our snow bird volunteers are returning. Mark your calendars for the summer Gala on June 11th, and Soup Bowls for Hunger on April 12th. The Gala and Soup Bowl events will sell out early so plan to get your tickets soon.

Soup Bowls for Hunger
April 12th at the Cape Cod Tech in Harwich
This will be the 25th year the Cape Cod Potters have hosted this event to benefit the Family Pantry. Artists from across the Cape donate hundreds of handmade soup bowls, the Girl Scouts are the hostesses, and the Culinary department at Cape Cod Tech creates the wonderful soup!

The meal consists of a roll, coffee or tea, and a warming soup served in a handmade bowl that each participant gets to keep as a reminder of hunger on Cape Cod. All of the 600+ bowls are handmade by professional potters, art students in public and private schools, and art programs across Cape Cod.

There will be 3 seatings for this event 5:30, 6:00, and 6:30 p.m. The price of each ticket is $18 and each seating will sell out. Click here to order tickets
