Empty Bowls, Tarrant Area Food Bank’s largest annual fundraiser, is set to bring together artists, numerous 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.”
Every general admission ticket helps provide access to more than 300 meals for people facing hunger. “Fighting hunger is critical in our local area because one out of every six of our neighbors experiences uncertainty about where their next meal will come from,” said Bo Soderbergh, executive director of Tarrant Area Food Bank. “Empty Bowls guests are helping us achieve our vision of communities where no one has to go hungry.”
With each ticket purchase, guests can select a bowl handcrafted by local artists and sample soups, desserts and other small bites from local restaurants and chefs. New restaurants include Snooze an A.M. Eatery, Righteous Foods and several others. Many Fort Worth favorites are also returning. View the full list on the event page at tafb.org.
“All of the bowls at Empty Bowls serve as a reminder of how each of us can help fill someone else’s bowl,” said Francie Cooper, director of community events for Tarrant Area Food Bank. “Our event committee has worked hard to make this year’s event better than ever to fill as many empty bowls as possible.”
Empty Bowls is being presented by GM Financial and Albertsons/Tom Thumb. View the full list of sponsors on the 2019 event page.
