Today, local chef and restaurant owner, Marty Biafora, donated $500.00 to Empty Bowls Monongalia to aid in their efforts to end food insecurity in our community. This donation comes just in time to help Empty Bowls meet this year’s monetary goal, and the organization hopes that it sparks other local restaurant owners to step up and help out as well.
Biafora contends that locals who earn their livings by serving the community should then give back to that community. To that end, Biafora has issued a challenge to other Morgantown area restaurants and caterers. “Match my donation,” Biafora said, “and let’s all work together to end hunger in Mon County.” “No child should go hungry. Period.”
