I'm posting to my blog earlier than usual today because I've got plans.
The North Texas Food Bank is "a non-profit hunger relief organization that distributes donated, purchased and prepared foods through a network of feeding programs in thirteen North Texas counties." NTFB is a member of America's Second Harvest program
Every year NTFB holds fund-raising luncheons in both Dallas and Fort Worth. Area artists and pottery makers donate hundreds of hand-thrown bowls. Local restaurants donate prepared food. Willing donors pay $35 for an empty bowl and the food that will fill it.
Today will be the tenth annual Empty Bowls luncheon, which will be held in the Meyerson Symphony Center in downtown Dallas. While I've made donations for years, I have never attended the actual lunch. I've invited my good friend Linda to go with me, and so we're having an OUTING.
Two posts will follow this one today.
See you tomorrow.
