Empty Bowls, Tarrant Area Food Bank’s largest annual fundraiser, is set to bring together artists, 50 local chefs and the community to raise funds to fight hunger across North Texas.
“Every sixth person in our community faces hunger. Every fourth is a child.”
Upon arrival at the event, each of the nearly 2,000 guests will receive a free bowl crafted by a local artist, school or community group. The bowl serves as a symbolic reminder that not everyone in our community has the ability to fill up their bowls. Guests then begin their adventure around the venue to sample soups and other bites created by 50 local chefs.
Proceeds from “Empty Bowls” are used to fight hunger right here at home. In total, the event is expected to raise 1.4 million meals for use across Tarrant Area Food Bank’s 13 county jurisdiction.
This year’s Empty Bowl event will be held on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas.
