Fishline Food Bank and Comprehensive Services in Poulsbo is having a virtual luncheon called “Empty Bowl” to raise funds for its programs.

The event is Nov. 20, but tickets for $25 each go on sale Oct. 21.

The community will be able to learn about Fishline’s COVID-19 process, hear client stories about how Fishline has impacted them, honor Fishline’s volunteers, and hear from local businesses and organizations that support Fishline.

“We are incredibly excited to host the community at our virtual ‘lunch and learn’,” Fishline director Lori Maxim said. “We have missed being able to engage with North Kitsap and showcase the work that we do.”

Maxim noted the increase in need Fishline has seen 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 12:30-1:30 p.m. The ticket price includes a $15 lunch ticket that can be used at several of Fishline’s partner restaurants. All proceeds will be used to ensure Fishline’s clients have access to quality produce, holiday meal items and their comprehensive services.

Businesses and organizations interested in supporting this event can contact Dani Wasia at communications@fishlinehelps.org or call 360-208-8508.

For tickets go to fishlinehelps.org.
