12TH ANNUAL EMPTY BOWLS FUNDRAISING EVENT
The Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB) invites you to the 12th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraising Event. This special function is just one of many vital events that ACCFB orchestrates to support Alameda County residents in time of need.
Alameda County Community Food Bank
ACCFB has been operating since 1985, and provides food for 240 non profit agencies in Alameda County. Through the generous support of the local community, ACCFB is able to provide 540,000 meals weekly to those who need it most. The main goal of the Alameda County Community Food Bank is "to ensure every food insecure child, adult and senior in Alameda County knows where their next meal is coming from". Since moving into a permanent (larger) facility near the Oakland Airport in 2005, the Food Bank has ramped up distribution of fresh fruits and vegetables by more than 1,000%.
The 12th Annual Empty Bowls Event will be an evening of art, nourishment, and advocacy taking place on Thursday, May 18, 2017 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. The event will take place at the Alameda County Community Food Bank located at 7900 Edgewater Drive in Oakland, California.
