Food for Thought Tour & Lunch

Food for Thought

Time: 10:30 am
Date: Friday February 22, 2019
Address: 3051 Industrial 25th St, Fort Pierce, FL 34946-8635, United States
Category: Educational
Join us for our Food 4 Thought tour at Treasure Coast Food Bank’s state-of-the-art food processing plant and learn how we are feeding the Treasure Coast with locally sourced, nutritious produce.

The produce processing plant extends the shelf life of produce, thus expanding the number of people who have access to it through two systems – a wash/chop/packaging system to convert whole produce into pre-cut portions, and a cook/vacuum-pack system to convert raw vegetables into ready-to-use products, such as tomato sauce, sautéed vegetables, or soups.

During summer, the plant’s focus is on preparing hundreds of nutritious meals each day for area children fed through Treasure Coast Food Bank’s Summer Meals program. The processing plant has created jobs, training opportunities, and a new market for area farmers.

The February tour will be held: February 22, 2019
Time: 10:30am – 12:00pm
Where: 3051 Industrial 25th Street, Fort Pierce

Complimentary lunch will be provided by Healthy Harvest Catering, a program of Treasure Coast Food Bank.

The tour and lunch are free. Donations are appreciated.
Registration is required, and space is limited. ***Please wear closed toe shoes.

Lundin Kudo Empty Bowls Project

Lundin Kudo Empty
Share by Email
Time: 10:30 am
Date: Sunday February 24, 2019
Location: GFWC Woman's Club of Stuart
Address: 729 SE Ocean Boulevard, Stuart, Florida 34994
Category: Fund Raiser
On Sunday, Feb. 24, the 13th Annual Lundin Kudo Empty Bowls Project will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Woman’s Club of Stuart, 729 East Ocean Blvd. The event honors the late ceramic artist Lundin Kudo and raises money to fight hunger in Martin County.

Enjoy a serving of savory soup and locally baked bread served in hand-crafted bowls created by noted local artists. Keep the bowl of your choice in exchange for a $20 donation. All proceeds benefit Treasure Coast Food Bank and Mary’s Kitchen.

Restaurants providing soup for this year’s Lundin Kudo Empty Bowls event are: Chef’s Table of Stuart, Conchy Joe’s Seafood, Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House, East Ocean Bistro, Giuseppe’s Italian Grill, Ground Floor Farm, Healthy Harvest Catering, Kazu, Osceola Street Café, and The Gafford.

While these servings of soup make a hearty meal, the Empty Bowls Project raises awareness that 1 in 7 people on the Treasure Coast are food-insecure, uncertain where their next meal will come from.

The event also features the Mae Slaton auction of “souper” bowls. Bids on the exceptional pieces created by well-known clay artists provide an additional opportunity to feed hungry people in Martin County.

The project would not be possible without support from The Woman’s Club of Stuart, Clay Habit Studio, Gail McCarthy Studio, Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery and School of Art, OldMoonClay.com, Pottery by Alex, Sculpture House, Stuart Ceramics Painting Studio and Publix.
