The other day I went out to lunch with a friend, something that we all do throughout the week. The bill ended up totaling $35 for the both of us. I paid the bill and left a tip without thinking anything of it. Then I realized that the same $35 that bought two lunches could have provided nearly 150 lunches to our hungry neighbors in need. Imagine that!
With that said, in just 5 days we will be having our 20th annual Empty Bowls Symbolic Soup Kitchen Luncheon! I invite you to join Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, as we remember and support those who may not have as much to be thankful for this holiday season.
What: The 20th Annual Empty Bowls Luncheon, presented by General Mills
When: Tuesday, November 10, 2009 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. (Registration begins at 11:30 a.m.)
Where: Embassy Suites Orlando Downtown—191 East Pine St. Orlando FL 32801
Why: To benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and its partner agencies
Tickets to this wonderful, feel-good event are $35 each and will provide you with a traditional soup kitchen meal consisting of bread, salad, and soup. There will be an amazing saxophone player and vocalist.
Plus every guest in attendance will receive a unique, handcrafted bowl created by local area students or artists! If you have attended this event in the past, you already know what a meaningful kickoff it can be for your holiday season–so please join us again and bring a friend!
