Second Harvest Food Bank invites you to partner with us to help fight hunger in our communities by participating in the 5th Annual Empty Bowls Benefit.
The event will take place on Saturday, February 25th 2017 at the Sysco Central California Facility, 136 Mariposa Rd., Modesto CA. Doors will open at 6:00 pm for our cocktail hour, silent auction, and one of a kind wine raffle. A unique dining experience will be provided by the talented chefs of Sysco. This is truly an evening that you will not want to miss!
Empty Bowls serves as a visual reminder that so many in our community often go without the most vital necessity: food. This event will showcase the programs and services Second Harvest offers and is one way to help ensure our neighbors’ bowls are filled.
It was a privileged to be able to provide a bowl for the empty bowl art display that they will have at this event. They are shooting to have about 500 painted empty bowls to represent all the hungry people in our community.
The bowl I painted says “Love” in seven different langues. Hunger has no racial boundaries, but neither should love.
