Community Cooperative is pleased to announce their 2017 Empty Bowls fundraiser, presented by Suncoast Credit Union, set to take place on Saturday, March 25th, 2017 at Alliance for the Arts. The Lee Arts Education Program will also be collaborating with this year’s event to raise hunger awareness through art. One of a kind handcrafted ceramic bowls made by Lee County school children will be available for purchase at the event as a reminder of those that go hungry right here in Lee County.
This year’s event will feature: a soup cook-off & soup sampling from local favorites, a painting area sponsored by Painting with a Twist Fort Myers, bites from Jonesez BBQ, Inc., family friendly activities, dance & music performances by local schools and organizations, and more to support Community Cooperative’s mission to end hunger and homelessness in Lee County. Admission is free and wristbands for the soup sampling will be available for purchase for a small donation at the event. Money raised at the event will benefit Community Cooperative’s Healthy School Pantry and FLIP (Food Literacy in Preschool) programs.
