About the Empty Plate Dinner

EPDLogo_2018We invite you to join us for the 5th Annual 2018 Empty Plate Dinner, our signature Northeast Philadelphia event! Held at St. Dominic Parish’s Marian Hall (8532 Frankford Avenue) and co-hosted by Holy Family University, the Empty Plate Dinner is a crowd-pleasing event that draws over 350 members of the Northeast Philadelphia community.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday April 14th, 2018 beginning at 5:00p.m.
Dinner will be served until 8:00p.m.

The Empty Plate Dinner combines the warmth of community and a hearty meal for the purpose of raising support for PIHN’s 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!
