Good people, Good Food, Good Cause:  Montgomery Empty Bowls, is celebrating its 10th year of raising funds in support of Montgomery Area Food Bank from 11 am – 1 pm, March 17th inside First Baptist Church at 305 South Perry Street.

Empty Bowls began locally in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and spread into national program using Empty Bowls to remind us of those who go hungry. Montgomery Empty Bowls starts with volunteers making hand-made bowls. Then, for the price of admission - $25 per person - attendees get to pick and keep their favorite from the hundreds of beautiful and “unique” bowls donated; and join us for lunch. Don’t worry, you won’t have to use your new bowl. 

You don’t have to make a bowl to donate either, but that’s half the fun. For bowl-making sessions (some folks have already begun) contact Louise at  or For more information about tickets, please email:

Our community partner Publix, once again is making it easy for shoppers to donate and provide assistance to neighbors in need from March 3-26, at  all local PUBLIX Super.  

Food for Sharing is the spring edition of their familiar Food for All holiday food drive.  Donation cards, representing three levels of giving, will be available at checkout lines. Once a customer has selected one of the three 'recipies', the cashier scans the card and the amount is added to the customer's total order.

Behind the scenes, PUBLIX staff pull scan data and transmit case quantities. From the warehouse, selectors pull the product and male whole cases deliveries, which are perfect for easier handling and distribution by Montgomery Area Food Bank.
