Bonney started working with the River City Food Bank as an effort to alleviate the vast number of people who go hungry in Sacramento County every year. This continued community partnership has included participating in the annual Empty Bowls event and the Harvest for Hunger, which takes place in September every year.bonney-empty-bowls

Mark and Candace Bonney will attend the Empty Bowls event for the evening meal on March 9th to be Honorary Servers. They have attended the past four Empty Bowls events in order to help serve and believe in the sustaining sponsorship that has been upheld with RCFB for five years. The soups were served in handcrafted bowls that were made specifically for the event by local artists. These bowls are meant to be a representation of those that go hungry and can be taken home by attendees as a reminder of the ongoing mission. At a previous event, Bonney received a handcrafted sink bowl for participation.

Bonney firmly believes in helping and assisting non-profits and charities that better the local communities. The Bonney Cares program is Bonney’s philanthropic program that ensures the continued participation with important causes such as the River City Food Bank. To learn more about this program, visit
