Tarrant Area Food Bank is the primary source of donated food for schools and mobile pantries across 13 North Texas counties. Their distribution has increased 35% since March 13, 2020, but their annual fundraiser, “Empty Bowls” was cancelled in response to COVID-19 mandates at the state and local level. Empty Bowls, a soups and stews festival, was expected to raise $300,000 and provide 1.5 million meals for those in need in Tarrant County. It is imperative we continue to support our local food bank, even $10 can help provide 50 meals for those in need. Please consider making a donation to the Tarrant Area Food Bank:
