New Pioneers invites our members, friends, donors, and community to attend our annual Empty Bowl Supper on Friday, February 23, 2024 from 5:30-8 p.m. This event is New Pioneers' sole fundraiser that supports our work throughout the year ahead!

Register for the 2024 Empty Bowl Supper today!

In this evening of "connection, collaboration, and celebration", our community comes together to enjoy a wide selection of home cooked soups and stews and to celebrate local artists, performers, and potters. Donations are encouraged upon entry, with a recommended amount of $30.00 per attendee. Recommended dress is casual to elevated casual.

This year, New Pioneers is thrilled to formally roll out our 2024-2026 Strategic Plan through conversation and collaboration at our Empty Bowl Supper. We're also excited to host the first, inaugural "Pioneer Awards" to honor four unique individuals, projects, and businesses making a positive impact in our communities.

We invite you to join us for a night of fun, food, and revelry in support of sustainability!
