"Empty Bowls" is a very successful fundraiser for the Harry Chapin Food Bank.
Local artists contribute pottery bowls that patrons buy for $15 and
local restaurants serve soup and bread to fill the bowls.
Last year the fundraiser raised $60,000 in three hours.
This year it seemed even more crowded.
Charity Navigator ranks the Harry Chapin Food Bank as #1 out of 141 Florida charities in its effectiveness and #11 out of 3,326 charities nationwide.
