JAN. 30 FUNDRAISER: Help the Food Bank of NELA, get an artisan bowl and restaurant coupons
MONROE, La. (KNOE) – The Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana is preparing to host its 5th Annual Empty Bowls fundraiser event, which will help put feed people in our community.
The event will be held on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and it will look a little different this year.
“In 2021, Empty Bowls is being re-imagined due to the pandemic. To protect the health and safety of our community, we will be having a drive-thru event,” said a message posted on the food bank’s website.
You can help the food bank feed families in need by purchasing a ticket to the event, which will help the Food Bank provide about 200 meals to children, families and seniors who face hunger in our community. You get a little something too.
“With the price of an event ticket, guests can choose a beautiful bowl to take home as a reminder of all of the empty bowls in our community. They will also pick up a to-go container of delicious soup, plus a Dining Passport with coupons for local restaurants!”
