The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is proud to announce a signature event, the 19th annual Empty Bowls, will be held on March 2, 2018 at the The F.I.G. (1807 Ross Avenue, Dallas, TX 75201).

Guests will enjoy a European-themed lunch featuring soup and other delicacies from 20+ of North Texas’ finest restaurants. Attendees can select a handcrafted bowl featuring the talents of Texas artists and potters as a memento of the day.  

Empty Bowls is the signature event for the North Texas Food Bank that combines artisan handmade bowls, food and music to help feed hungry North Texans.

Nineteen years ago Empty Bowls was started by local potters, John and Darlene Williams, as a fun and creative way to fight hunger in the North Texas communities. What started in the basement of a Dallas church has now evolved in to a 2,000+ guest event gracing the Fashion Industry Gallery, delicious dishes from area restaurants and more than 3,000 unique, handmade, pottery bowls.

On March 2nd the tradition of artfully nourishing our neighbors will once again provide memories for those who attend and hope for those who suffer from hunger.
