Good Times at Burnaby Empty Bowls

A few Burnaby Food First-ers attended the recent Burnaby Empty Bowls gala, and we had a great time!

The food was amazing, the company engaging, and the silent and live auctions were a lot of fun -- and, of course, the bowls were incredible!

Thanks to everyone who made this happen! A big thanks also to Empty Bowls for their support of our Sharing Backyards project!

Yum! Some of the great food featured during the event.

The Empty Bowls Project was launched in 1999 to raise awareness about the existence of hunger and poverty in Burnaby. Every two years, the Project hosts a fundraising gala. Funds raised go to support local programs for children, youth, and families in Burnaby that provide nutritious food and help to build skills that encourage healthy lifestyles.

Burnaby Food First donated an apron to the silent auction - it was very popular!

Hope to see you all at the next event in two years' time!
