We are proudly celebrating the 22nd 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 Manatee Performing Arts Center will be held on Thursday, November 3, 2022.
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, bread, and dessert donated by local restaurants. Show your support for Meals on Wheels PLUS and The Food Bank of Manatee and help us #FEEDMANATEE!
