This is the 22nd annual event, hosted by the Central Texas Food Bank
, and it's as lovely as it is simple to participate: Select a ceramic bowl from the thousands donated by local potters
; choose your favorite gourmet soups from Austin’s best chefs and restaurants
, and enjoy lunch while listening to live music
; take the bowl home with you. Is that still too much fuss? Then attend the fancy preview party on Saturday instead
! Note: All proceeds benefit the CTFB children’s programs and Meals on Wheels Central Texas. Read Emily Beyda's article
about the history and future of the event.
