Tarrant Area Food Bank to Host Virtual Food Drive – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
Following a 2020 cancellation, the Tarrant Area Food Bank is bringing back their annual Signature Food Drive event, Empty Bowls, this time with a virtual twist.
“Empty Bowls is our one-of-a-kind donor event that was canceled out of concern about the pandemic. But this year it’s back, reinvented and designed to instantly reach those in need in our 13-county service area,” said the President and Chief Executive TAFB officer, said Julie Butner.
Donors are encouraged to sponsor boxes of food for families through an online fundraiser run by the Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB).
With every donation, donors receive a free handcrafted bowl designed by local artists.
Funds raised are expected to feed 3,000 families at the Mega Mobile Empty Tray Market on Thursday March 25th. Donors can take part in the TAFB Donor Appreciation Event and pick up their bowl the next day, Friday, March 26th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“This event has so many fond memories for me and my staff. Although we know that one day it will be personal again, for the time being, we want to get involved wherever we can to promote the community and get involved through online donations continue, “said Chef and Restauranteur, said Jon Bonnell.
Donors can register for the event through the TAFB donation website.
