Empty Bowls Caring Hearts 16th Annual Dinner being held October 16 at Moose Hall.
Over the past 15 years, this hardworking volunteer committee has worked to raise over $217,000 for the Thunder Bay Food Bank and Shelter House through this event for existing food programs which directly support individuals and families in need of a hand up. Their efforts are also geared towards fostering a conscious culture and heighten public awareness regarding food scarcity, hunger, and poverty in our own backyard.
The dinner menu is homemade fare, prepared and donated by local chefs, restaurants, cafés and bakeries such as Bistro One, St. Paul’s Roastery and Sweet Escapes Cake Café & Bakery. It is a simple meal of soup, bread, and dessert, a symbolic gesture of a “poverty meal” representing the focus and inspiration for the event.
It is hoped that the evening will raise awareness and cultivate an attitude that will extinguish poverty and hunger.
All proceeds are donated to Shelter House and the Thunder Bay Food Bank
