Empty Bowls, the North Texas Food Bank’s signature luncheon is just a few days away, on Friday, February 19 at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas!

Empty Bowls, a nationwide effort to combat hunger, began in Michigan in 1990. A group of high school students determined that serving people of all kinds a simple meal of soup and bread in a decorative ceramic bowl would be a great way to raise funds. Guests would be asked to keep the bowl as a reminder of those who don’t get enough to eat. The event is unique in that it doesn’t have headquarters, a director, or any guidelines. The Dallas chapter was initiated by John Williams, potter and former owner of Trinity Ceramic Supply Inc., and his wife Darlene. In its 11 year history, Empty Bowls has provided over 2 million meals for hungry North Texas Families.

Also, before you leave, you will select a handmade bowl, crafted by a local artisan. Young Strings will be on hand during the event, performing classical music. Empty Bowls begins at 11 am and lasts until 1 pm. Tickets may be purchased before the event for $30, and at the door for $35.
