'Empty Bowls' luncheons


Empty Bowls

The 13th annual “Empty Bowls” luncheons feature area restaurants, local businesses and talented potters contributing to raise funds for The Food Bank of Manatee. Tickets include a unique ceramic bowl to keep, a selection of soups, fresh bread from Publix, and a Grandma’s Goodies cookie.

The simple meal of soup and bread is symbolic of the hunger struggle in the Bradenton area with the event serving as a way to help restock the shelves, which have been very bare in recent months.

This year’s participating restaurants include MacAllister’s Restaurant, Polo Grill & Fete Catering, Woody’s River Roo and numerous others. Art Center Manatee, Main Street at Lakewood Ranch and METV are also participating.

11 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday; Renaissance on 9th: 1816 9th St. W., Bradenton; 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday; Lakewood Main Street, 8131 Main Street, Lakewood Ranch; $25; $10 (children age 12 and younger); 749-0100;
