Empty Bowls: Dine and Donate

October 15, 2015
Santa Ynez Valley

On Thursday, October 15th, PHP will celebrate “World Food Day” with an “Empty Bowls: Dine and Donate” campaign to highlight the fact that in the United States and even in the Santa Ynez and Los Alamos Valleys, many children and adults go to bed hungry. There are two fundraising components to this campaign.

First, there is a direct mail campaign sent to over 3,800 household soliciting funds for the PHP Food Program. A brown bag mailer and insert are sent the first week in October of each year, which now also includes the Empty Bowls Raffle. To participate in this year’s Empty Bowls Raffle, download Raffle Tickets ($5.00 each or $30.00 for 8) from www.syvphp.org/events/empty-bowls and return them to PHP.

Second, local restaurants and wineries will donate a portion of their meals and tasting sales on October 15th towards PHP’s Food Program. Each year, we have incredible and generous restaurants and wineries (listed below) that have signed on to participate (click here to download a participation form). PHP promotes these restaurants and encourages supporters to dine out via the direct mail piece, press releases, web site postings, and by posting special Empty Bowls Campaign posters in their windows. Now… go eat out!

Participating Restaurants and Tasting Rooms for 2015 to-date are:

A-RU Sushi, The Ballard Inn & Restaurant, Carhartt Vineyard and Winery, Chomp Burgers, Fries, and Shakes, Coffee Cabin , Figueroa Mountain Brewing, Fresco Valley Cafe, Greenhouse Café, Hitching Post II Restaurant & Winery, Industrial Eats, Kate’s Yogurt, Longhorn Coffee Shop, Longoria Wines, Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe, Pattibakes, Sante Wine Bar & Lounge, Solvang Restaurant, Starting Gate Restaurant, Tercero Wines, Tower Pizza Solvang, Trattoria Grappolo, Viking Garden, The Vineyard House Restaurant
