Several members of Quota International of Fort Collins volunteered for the 2015 Empty Bowls fundraiser held February 5th. The members staffed the registration table, greeted the guests and handed out samples of the many delicious soups.
Working to increase awareness of hunger, The Empty Bowls event is a major fundraiser for the Food Bank for Larimer County. The event offers guests the opportunity to select a pottery bowl made by students in the Poudre School District or by a local artist and enjoy signature soups provided by area restaurants. In addition to tasting delicious hand-crafted soups, guests can choose to bid on silent auction items while enjoying live music from an area band. For the price of one ticket to Empty Bowls Fort Collins, the Food Bank can provide enough food to feed 200 families in need in Larimer County.
