The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County is holding a fundraiser Wednesday to benefit the community of Lompoc.

It’s the 12th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser.

For a $25 donation, people can receive a gourmet soup luncheon served in handmade ceramic bowls.

This years Empty Bowls Fundraiser will be held at the Dick DeWees Center on 1120 W. Ocean Ave. from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

There will also be a silent auction and at the end of the event, guests get to take the bowls home.

The Foodbank says money raised will stay in the Lompoc area to provide food to the disadvantaged in the community.
