Bowls of Hope

The Sarasota Bowls of Hope Lunch is an annual community event benefiting the All Faiths Food Bank. It is held shortly before Thanksgiving each year. In 2015 it will be held Nov. 8 at Phillippi Estate Park, 5500 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota
11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Tickets are $30 at the gate. $25 in advance.

Through the efforts of local potters and restaurants, this event has raised more than $200,000 in the past ten years to aid the area's hungry.

Each guest selects from a gourmet buffet of savory soups and delicious breads donated by Sarasota's finest restaurants and businesses. As well as hospitals and senior housing complexes. Each person receives a handmade bowl and three servings of delicious soups, chowders or bisques as well as coffee, soft drinks and a choice of breads and desserts.
