On Sunday, March 13th, BYOB (that's bring your own bowl) to the 8th Annual Empty Bowls event at the American Legion Hall in Amagansett. From 12 to 3 p.m., over 30 local chefs will serve up one of the best seasonal comfort foods, soup. Attendees can come prepared with their own bare small or large bowl, which they will use to fill up as they taste test the plethora of options, like Cream of Roasted Cauliflower, Vegetarian Minestrone, and Scallop Chowder. And make sure to come ready to feast, because guests are allowed to try all of the varieties, as long as their stomachs can handle it. If you forget your bowl at home, don't fret as they'll be extras on hand. Proceeds from the afternoon will benefit Project MOST's Springs Seedlings Project.

Currently, chefs from Almond, Amagansett Fire Department, Art Of Eating, Bell & Anchor, Bostwick's, Bridgehampton School, Di Canela, Debbie Geppert Events @ Dreesen's Catering, Fresh Hamptons, Hampton Marketplace, Harbor Grill, Hayground School, Indian Wells Tavern, Mary's Marvelous, Mill House Inn, Nick & Toni's, Old Stone Market, One Stop Market, Pepperoni's Pizza, Pete Ambrose Events, Sea Bean, Seafood Shop, Silver Spoon Specialties, Simply Sublime, Smokin' Wolf, Springs General Store, Springs Pizza, and Stuart's Seafood will participate in the comfort food culinary experience. The afternoon will also feature an Arts & Crafts table with a raffle and baked goods to ensure that no one leaves the benefit hungry.

Empty Bowls was founded by Joe Realmuto, Chef and Owner of Honest Man Restaurant Group, and Bryan Futerman, Chef at Nick & Toni's. "I cannot thank all of my chefs enough, this event means so much to Springs Seedlings and Project MOST," expressed Realmuto.

The Springs Seedlings Project, an edible classroom and greenhouse, was inspired by The Edible Schoolyard, a garden established by Alice Waters, Owner of Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley, California. Project MOST, an after school program at the Springs School District, created their greenhouse on land allocated by the Springs School District. It has developed into a mecca for teaching, learning, and growing, and even inspired other programs, like Seedlings' Earthsavers, Health & Wellness, Greenhouse Science Education, STEM Education and the Seedlings I-Grow Summer Program. The mission of Project MOST is to enrich children's non-school hours by using the time to nature natural inquisitiveness.

Proceeds from Empty Bowls will support Project MOST programs, fund their Nutrition Educator and help maintain the current greenhouse at Springs School as well as garden boxes at John Marshall Elementary School.

Admission to the fundraiser is $12 for adults, $5 for kids (13 and under) and free for kids under 5-years-old, or $25 for families.

The American Legion Hall is located at 15 Montauk Highway in Amagansett. For more information, visit www.projectmost.com.
