Thank You for Filling Empty Bowls!

By Anne-Lise Cossart November 1, 2011

Hats off to all the generous donors who participated in our Fourth Annual Empty Bowls event.  Thank you to the restaurants, vendors and partner agencies for the mouth-watering soups, breads, beverages and cookies.  Sincere thanks to the many artists, especially Jodi Walsh from Gallery 555dc, for their talent and creativity in crafting over 400 unique bowls.  We would also like to thank the lead sponsor of this year’s Empty Bowls, Whole Foods Market, for its generous $10,000 donation.  Altogether, this event raised over $20,000 – nine times more than last year!  With this year’s proceeds,  the food bank will be able to provide 60,000 meals to those in need. Thank you so much for your generosity and dedication to feeding those suffering from hunger.
