We invite you to join us for the 4th Annual 2017 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 22nd, 2017 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!
