Full Bowls, Full Hearts
A handcrafted bowl isn't just a work of art – it can also be a reminder of people who struggle with food insecurity in our community. This year's Empty Bowls – An Artful Way to End Hunger luncheon will go a long way toward filling those empty bowls (and pantries) for hungry families right here in North Texas. The fund-raiser for the Tarrant Area Food Bank generally attracts around 2,000 guests who each select a keepsake bowl made by local artisans. Held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center, this year's event features a luncheon of soups and desserts by some of Fort Worth's most talented chefs, as well as a silent auction of original art.
Tickets are sold in advance only, so get yours today. First Choice Power Community Manager Catherine Carlton serves on the board of the food bank, so be sure to tell her hello at the event.
"This is one of my favorite events of the year," Catherine told us. "It's an event that really makes an impression on you and your stomach. And it's a great help for the food bank, which is in need of donations, especially at this time of year when there are so many families in need."
