We want to thank Diane Anderson of Enumclaw Rotary for passing along the update today that the Empty Bowls Benefit in March this year collected in total, $6,432 in support of the Kiwanis and Plateau Outreach Ministries food banks.
to read about the initial pottery kick-off at Green River Community College, and at Enumclaw High School. Participants gathered during the benefit to have a simple meal of soup while admiring the craftsmanship of local artists who created the handmade bowls. Each person took home a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls that remain around the world.
The funds were split evenly between the two local food banks.
