One of my favorite annual charity events in Dallas and Fort Worth is Empty Bowls! The unique event is a fantastic fundraiser for each area’s food banks, North Texas Food Bank in Dallas and Tarrant Area Food Bank in Fort Worth. With admission, patrons are invited enjoy any of the soups, breads and desserts provided by several of your favorite local restaurants and go home with a hand crafted bowl created by an area artisan. It’s always a perfect girlfriend date or work outing to have us meet up to catch up while enjoying delicious soups and then go home with something special. And of course, best of all, you are helping to fight hunger.
And to really pile it on, you have two events to choose from or go to both!
(While kids can attend, this is one of those special “ladies that lunch” opportunity, so it’s worth the sitter if your kids aren’t in school!)
