Fill Empty Bowls with North Texas Food Bank

The North Texas Food Bank’s signature luncheon, Empty Bowls, presented by Tom Thumb, marks its 12th anniversary on Friday, February 25, 2011 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Meyerson Symphony Center serving up unlimited steaming bowls of soups and bisques, breads and desserts from 20-plus of the city’s top restaurants and food purveyors. VIP reception starts at 10:30 a.m. and guests are allowed to pick their bowl first and enjoy special, exclusive treats.

For $35 in advance or $40 at the door, guests enjoy the best lunch deal in town and listen to classical music by Young Strings of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, plus each diner selects a handmade bowl created by an area artisan to take home as a party favor. This year new restaurants include: Bolsa, Truluck’s, Pizza Inn, Horne & Dekker, Empire Baking Co., Chill Bubble Tea, and Freeb!rds World Burrito. Purchase tickets here.

The North Texas Food Bank serves 1,146 feeding and education programs in 13 North Texas counties. Every dollar donated equals three meals.
