Empty Bowls at LWR

Join Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee as We Celebrate Hunger-relief in Manatee County!

We are proudly celebrating the 21st Anniversary of our annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser. The purpose of Empty Bowls is uniting to show support for the critical work of Meals on Wheels PLUS through The Food Bank of Manatee!

Empty Bowls at Lakewood Ranch Main Street will be held on Friday, November 5, 2021. Come anytime between 11am-1pm and we will have outdoor seating and to-go options.

Your support of Empty Bowls will help children, families, and seniors in need, right here in our community. All proceeds benefit The Food Bank of Manatee, a PLUS program of Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee. Now, more than ever, we need the support of the community. Guests who attend Empty Bowls select a beautiful, handcrafted bowl to keep and enjoy soup donated by local restaurants. Show your support for Meals on Wheels PLUS and The Food Bank of Manatee and help us #FEEDMANATEE!

For restaurants that want to donate soup, please register here.
