Empty Bowls event is March 1 at EHS commons

The Empty Bowls event is scheduled 4 to 7 p.m. March 1 at the Enumclaw High commons, 226 Semanski St.

Empty Bowls is an international grass roots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is potters and  other crafts people create handcrafted bowls. Guests arrive for a simple soup meal and choose a unique bowl they keep as a symbol and a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.

The purpose is twofold to raise awareness of the fight against hunger in our  community and to raise funds to support local food banks.

Proceeds from this event support the efforts of Plateau Outreach Ministries and the Kiwanis  Food Bank to feed those in need on the Plateau.

This project is spearheaded by a committee from organizations including:

• Enumclaw Mayor Liz Reynolds

•  Green River Community College pottery department

•  Enumclaw Kiwanis

•  Enumclaw Rotary Club

•  Plateau Outreach Ministries

•  Arts Alive! Center For the Arts

•  The Enumclaw School District

Tickets will be available at the door. Choose your bowl on a first come, first served basis with 100 percent of the money raised will go to feed people on the Plateau. Your participation will help meet a great need in our community.
