The sold-out event was a success because of our generous community. If you missed it and would like an email to let you know as soon as tickets go on sale next year, please send your email address to Elaina Mand, firstname.lastname@example.org.

A simple meal of soup and bread; a reminder of the empty bowls we fill together.
NEW location! Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota
Bring the kids for a soup-er, family-friendly day at the park, where more than 1,500 guests (a sold-out crowd!) attend each year to support All Faiths Food Bank. Along with an opportunity to enjoy soup, bread and desserts provided by 40 restaurants, each guest selects a beautiful, handcrafted bowl – donated by local artists – to take home as a reminder of the empty bowls they help fill.
Event Chairs: Susan Malloy Jones and Paul Mattison; Honorary Chairs: Renee Hamad and Hillary Steele.
Please contact Elaina Mand at email@example.com if you would like to provide food at the event.
