In celebration of Feeding America Tampa Bay's mission - Ending Hunger, Nourishing Hope - the weekend prior to Thanksgiving is set aside for Empty Bowls, the food bank's largest annual event. This Tampa Bay tradition of more than 20 years offers guests a simple meal of soup, bread, fruit and water, similar to soup kitchen fare. Patrons also select from among hundreds of charming commemorative bowls handcrafted by Tampa Bay area schoolchildren, as a reminder that there are always empty bowls to fill.
