Foodbank provided 1.3 million pounds of food and served 57% of residents in Lompoc in 2017
The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County hosts the 14th Annual Lompoc Empty Bowls fundraiser on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Dick DeWees Senior & Community Center at 1120 W. Ocean Ave., Lompoc.
For a donation of $25, attendees select a unique ceramic bowl, enjoy a simple meal of gourmet soup and bread, and take the bowl home as a reminder of the meal’s purpose: to provide food to hungry people in the Lompoc community.
Lompoc Empty Bowls raises funds to help the Foodbank address hunger in Lompoc with nutrition education and programs, healthy groceries and fresh produce.
