Pensacola State College, MANNA, and Gulf Power Co. proudly celebrate MANNA Food Pantries’ 30 years of serving the hungry in our local communities with our annual “Fill A Bowl for MANNA” event, Saturday, Jan. 19, 1-3 p.m., at the Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio, 1000 College Boulevard, Pensacola State College.
The public is encouraged to attend the event and to select a bowl from a colorful variety of hand-made bowls by area artists and Pensacola State College Visual Arts faculty and students. Once the treasured bowls have been selected, participants will fill their bowls with soups prepared by some of Pensacola’s most popular chefs and eateries. While filling a bowl with sumptuous soup, you will be helping MANNA fill the empty bowls of more than 40,000 people in Northwest Florida.
The $30 entry fee entitles guests to take their bowls home as keepsakes. Sponsors include Pensacola State College, PSC Visual Arts Department, Gulf Power Co., local artists, and local vendors. Proceeds from the sale of the bowls benefit MANNA directly by providing food for the hungry.
MANNA, established in 1983, is a non-profit organization that fights hunger in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, serving more than 40,000 people annually. For more information, call MANNA at (850) 432-2053, or Pensacola State College at (850) 484-1428.
