Empty Bowls event to benefit Second Harvest

The 28th annual Empty Bowls Luncheon to benefit Second Harvest North Florida is set for Nov. 13 at noon at the Prime Osborn Convention Center.
Bank of America is the presenting sponsor and this year’s theme is “Take the Pledge to End Hunger One Bowl at a Time.”
“Empty Bowls allows us to combine the tradition of children and adults creating artwork with a benefit to those who are hungry,” said Bruce Ganger, Second Harvest North Florida executive director. “This year we will emphasize that everyone can take the pledge to end hunger. It can be through the purchase of a bowl, the donation of money or food, or volunteering. We need everyone’s help to make sure that no one in north Florida goes hungry.”
The annual Empty Bowls Luncheon has come to symbolize the beginning of Thanksgiving and the holiday season by demonstrating community support for those who are coping with hunger in north Florida. Local celebrities act as servers for the event. In addition to helping fight hunger, the luncheon presents a diverse program for all.
Area students and senior citizen groups have created original, handcrafted ceramic bowl for each guest. Luncheon attendees are able to select just the right bowl to take home. Local potters and ceramic artists have also donated their time and talents to create unique bowls.
