Any meal you share with friends is instantly more special. Take that feeling and multiply it times several hundred, and you’ll understand how we feel about the North Texas Food Bank’s annual Empty Bowls Luncheon. The event is one of the food bank’s biggest fundraisers and helps to feed hungry people right here in Texas.
The event always begins with each attendee picking a handmade bowl. You don’t actually fill it up with the soup, salad and desserts from some of the areas best restaurants, but you get to take it home as a year-long reminder to help hungry folks in our community. This year, First Choice Power’s own Catherine Carlton attended. Her favorite soups were Bread Winners’ roasted garlic tomato basil, Bolsa’s green garlic and a creamy spring onion soup with smoked apples and leeks. Yum!
Next up for meals with friends? The Tarrant Area Food Bank’s annual Breakfast with the Stars on Saturday, March 24. You can eat with real ballerinas, basketball players, and even Cinderella. Catherine will be there with her son Jeffery, and she’s promised to give us a full report and photos to share.
