The blizzard this weekend isn't going to stop the Empty Bowls fundraiser in Amagansett on Sunday.
The fifth annual event benefiting the Project MOST's Springs Seedlings is set for noon to 3 p.m., at the American Legion in Amagansett.
How does this sound? Shrimp bisque, Thai peanut with cherries, Matzo Ball, cream of roasted cauliflower, New England Clam Chowder, split pea, vegetarian minestrone, white bean escarole pasole, garbure, and smoked pork pasole will be served.
Bring an empty bowl and fill it with all kinds of delicious soups. There will also be a bake sale, art projects for the kids, music, and a 50/50 raffle.
Admission is $12 for adults and $5 for children (kids under 5 are free). Quarts to go are $12.
Springs Seedlings is a project centered around a greenhouse at the Springs School. Local parents and chefs Bryan Futerman and Joe Realmuto started the program, meant to educate students about food, nutrition, how to grow their food, in 2008. Project MOST helps support Springs Seedlings through after-school programs associated with food and the greenhouse.
Are you glad organizers decided to go forward with the event?
