Empty Bowls event March 7 at Enumclaw High School

This year’s edition of the Empty Bowls project, which helps feed people in need on the Plateau, is slated for March 7.

The event will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Enumclaw High School commons.

Empty Bowls is an international, grassroots effort that seeks to raise awareness of the fight against hunger in local communities and raise money to support local food banks. In Enumclaw, Plateau Outreach Ministries and the Kiwanis Food Bank are beneficiaries.

In advance, potters create handcrafted bowls. On the day of the event, guests arrive for a simple soup meal and choose a unique bowl which they keep as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.

Admission is $20 and tickets will be available at the door. Bowls will be available on a first come, first served basis.

The local Empty Bowls project is spearheaded by a committee representing organizations like Arts Alive!, Enumclaw Rotary, the Enumclaw School District, Enumclaw Kiwanis, Plateau Outreach Ministries and the pottery department at Green River Community College, plus Enumclaw Mayor Liz Reynolds.
