serve a simple meal. Guests purchase a ticket to attend the event and that ticket allows them to choose a bowl to use for their meal. After the meal, the guests are allowed to then keep the bowl
as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. One hundred percent of each meal’s proceeds
are devoted to fighting hunger through the Greater Baton Rouge Food Ban.
