Empty Bowls

Posted: Updated:

Come on out to a fundraiser to help support the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank!

It takes more than 6-million meals to feed thousands of hungry Texomans each year. 

Many times it is difficult for the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank to provide enough food to go around.

Well a group is hosting a fundraiser called Empty Bowls.  Last year was a huge success and they're currently gearing up for the second annual event.

Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. Seeing there was a dire need in Texoma, co-chairs, Paula Perkins and Leslie Schaffner introduced the event last year to the Wichita Falls community.

Guests pay $35 to attend a soup luncheon. Restaurants donate the food and artists from Midwestern State University volunteer their time and talents throwing the ceramic bowls sent home with those in attendance. The keepsake serves as a reminder of all the empty bowls in Texoma.
This year's Empty Bowls event will be Tuesday, October 15 at the Museum of Art at MSU.  It's from 11:00a.m. to 1:30p.m. You can get tickets at any United Super Market or at the Food Bank, 1230 Midwestern Parkway.
