FAIRFIELD — The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano plans an Empty Bowl fundraiser from 3 to 5 p.m. March 10 at the warehouse, 2329 Courage Drive, Suite F.
A simple meal will be served in a handcrafted bowl. The event aims to educate the public about what the food bank is doing to get food to people in need. The handcrafted bowl is to serve as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the community.
The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano provides food to approximately 149,000 people each month through direct service programs and a network of 180 partner agencies. During 2012, the food bank distributed nearly 16 million pounds of food, enough for more than 13 million meals.
