Empty Bowls event fills gaps in fight against hunger Nov. 30

Enjoy a meal and help fight hunger in our community.

When you buy a bowl of pasta at the “Alli Ortega Empty Bowls” event Wednesday, Nov. 30, proceeds benefit the Vista del Camino Food Bank. The event takes place in the Scottsdale Community College Cafeteria and Student Center, 9000 E. Chaparral Road. Bowls bought from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. include a modest serving of pasta or soup prepared by the college’s Culinary Department and donated by the school’s Center for Civic and Global Engagement. Bowls will be available through 6 p.m.

Empty Bowls commemorates Alli Ortega, a longtime city of Scottsdale employee and Empty Bowls volunteer, who died in 2014. Her selfless dedication to the community and her spirit of volunteerism continue to inspire.
