Fishline to Host “Empty Bowl” Virtual Luncheon on November 20th

Announcements, News

Kitsap community members are invited to join Fishline Food Bank and Comprehensive Services for “Empty Bowl”, a virtual luncheon bringing together Fishline’s volunteers, supporters, and neighbors. Taking place on November 20th, the luncheon will provide the opportunity for community members to engage with Fishline’s new COVID-19 process, hear client stories about how Fishline has impacted them, honor and acknowledge Fishline’s volunteers, and hear from local businesses and organizations who support Fishline. Tickets are available at https://fishlinehelps.org/news-events/empty-bowls/ starting October 21st, 2020.

“We are incredibly excited to host the community at our virtual ‘lunch and learn’,” says Fishline director Lori Maxim. “We have missed being able to engage with North Kitsap and showcase the work that we do, and we are thrilled for the opportunity to open our door to our neighbors and spend some time with our community.” Maxim also notes the increase in need that Fishline has seen over the past months. “Fishline has seen incredible growth in the number of families and individuals needing support, especially as the colder weather sets in. This event will support Fishline’s mission to deliver a safety net for the most vulnerable in North Kitsap county.”

Empty Bowl will take place online from 12:30pm to 1:30pm on November 20th, 2020. Community members can purchase a ticket for $25, which includes a $15 lunch ticket that can be used at several of Fishline’s partner restaurants for the event. All proceeds from the event will be used to ensure Fishline’s clients have access to high quality produce, holiday meal items, and other comprehensive services.

Fishline is continuing to work with businesses and organization sponsors in the community. Businesses and organizations interested in supporting this event can reach out to Dani Wasia, Fishline’s Communications and Marketing Manager, at communications@fishlinehelps.org or by calling 360-208-8508.
