Community “Bowl Painting” to Help Fight Hunger

On Saturday, January 21 from 11am to 4pm in the concourse at Pybus Market, join the Chelan-Douglas Community Action Council and your friends and neighbors in painting a bowl to help fight hunger.

“Empty Bowls Wenatchee” simultaneously builds community and calls attention to the hunger still existent in our own valley. With a $10 dollar donation to the North Central Washington Food Distribution Center, anyone can receive a blank bowl that they will be given all the materials and instruction needed to personalize it with paint. For $35 a family can paint up to 5 bowls. Your bowl then gets a final layer of glaze and is fired into a finished masterpiece. Your donation includes admission into our dinner at Wenatchee High School on March 11, where we gather around a simple soup dinner and bread to work against hunger in our community.

“No bowl should go empty, but too often they do,” said Michael McGrath, AmeriCorps volunteer coordinating this event. “ We know that food security is a real issue in our community and this event is a way for local residents to help in a meaningful and fun way,” added McGrath.
