WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - The Wichita Falls Area Food Bank is making sure families don’t have to wonder when and where their next meal is coming from through their 10th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser.

The event had to be cancelled last year due to the pandemic, and this year organizers wanted to make sure it happened -- but they had to plan it early in the year, when COVID-19 was at its height. They thus made the tough decision to change it up, holding Empty Bowls virtually. They hope to still have the same strong turnout that they have seen in years past.

“We wanted to make sure that it was ever-present in people’s minds that this is a very important that we hold every year. It’s a national movement and we want to make sure Wichita Falls stands firm and make sure we fill as many empty bowls as we can,” said Simon Welch, marketing director of WFAFB.

Tickets are $35, which will get you soup mixes and a coupon book to seven restaurant sponsors. There will also be a silent auction from Nov. 26 to Dec. 9, where participants can bid on specialty owls starting at $50.
