Empty Bowls Event 2021 – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Join NBC 5 and the Tarrant Area Food Bank and help out with the “Empty Bowls” fundraiser against hunger!

Although the Tarrant Area Food Bank’s annual signature event may look different this year, the focus still remains the same to eradicate hunger.

After the 2020 event was canceled due to Covid-19, the Tarrant Area Food Bank reinvented the empty bowl fundraiser to create a different look. Instead of Empty Bowls being a donation event, this year it will be a mega food distribution run by Empty Bowls supporters.

The Tarrant Area Food Bank turned the Empty Bowls event into an online fundraiser where donors can sponsor boxes of food for families.

The reinvented program will help those in need in 13 coverage areas in North Texas. With a safe plan in action that follows the CDC protocol, the spirit of the signature event will continue to fill the bowls of our friends and neighbors.

Once the donations are contributed by sponsors, the Tarrant Area Food Bank will host a mega mobile empty tray market on Thursday March 25th. The event takes place in the Dickies Arena from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to feed 3,000 families.

To purchase tickets, visit www.tafb.org/empty-bowls.

With every virtual box donated, the guests receive their own “studio bowl”, which is handmade by local artists. The following Friday, March 26th, guests must pick up their studio bowl at the contactless drive-thru recognition event at the Dickies Arena.

The Tarrant Area Food Bank strives to empower communities and eradicate hunger by providing food, education and resources through innovation and collaboration. Through a network of 350 partners, the Tarrant Area Food Bank can provide hungry children and adults with access to over 1 million nutritious meals per week.

NBC 5 is the media sponsor of the Tarrant Area Food Bank’s Empty Bowls fundraiser.
