Thank you so much for your support.
We’ll see you next year!


We invite you to join┬áus for the 6th Annual 2019 Empty Plate Dinner, our signature Northeast Philadelphia event! Held at St. Dominic ParishÔÇÖs Marian Hall┬á(8504 Frankford Avenue), the Empty Plate Dinner is a crowd-pleasing event that draws over 350 members of the Northeast Philadelphia community.

The Empty Plate Dinner combines the warmth of community and a hearty meal for the purpose of raising support for PIHNÔÇÖs congregation-based emergency shelter program.

This is a family-friendly event, suitable for all ages with fun activities for children and raffles and prizes for all. For a modest donation, attendees are treated to fresh foods and desserts from over 70 area restaurants.

At the start of their meal, attendees choose a complimentary hand-painted plate donated by Holy Family University students, local congregations, and school children. After the meal, guests take their plates with them as a reminder that every night many of our neighbors, even working parents and their children, have only an empty plate.

Join us and savor all Northeast Philadelphia has to offer!
