The Santa Barbara County Food Bank is nearly one week away from hosting the Santa Maria Empty Bowls luncheon.

This particular Empty Bowls event aims to fight hunger in the City of Santa Maria. According to the food bank, 47% of the food distributed throughout Santa Barbara County goes to Santa Maria residents.

The Empty Bowls luncheon is on October 24 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and tickets cost $25.00. All proceeds from the event will go towards providing healthy food and nutritional education for the residents of Santa Maria.
