Empty Bowls 2022
Every year on Super Bowl Sunday, members of the community gather for our annual Empty Bowls event at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church to enjoy soups prepared by local restaurants and ceramics crafted by local potters. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we will be hosting this year’s event virtually.
More and more people in our community are facing food insecurity than ever before. Many are struggling to feed their families, leaving bowls empty on the dinner table and having nothing to eat.
The Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) is devoted solely to providing dignified access to nutritious, supplemental groceries – free of charge – to our neighbors in need. AFAC makes it possible for vulnerable families in our community to eat well while devoting their limited resources to financial obligations such as housing, utilities, medication, and other basic necessities.
We are selling sponsorships for the event. 100% of the proceeds will go towards helping AFAC feed our neighbors in need.
