Call for handmade bowl donations

About the Event:
April 6th at the Multnomah Arts Center in SW Portland from 5-7 PM; all proceeds will go straight to our Emergency Food Box program, the largest food pantry on Portland's West Side and one that is entirely community-supported. Last year's Empty Bowls helped secure over 19,000 pounds of food for the Food Box, and with OPA’s help we can gather even more for food insecure community members in SW.

A little more background: Since 2007, the SW HOPE community food drive has aimed to combat the sharp decline in giving that occurs after the New Year. In partnership with 40+ local faith and community organizations, the annual campaign works to keep the spirit of generosity alive all year long by keeping the Neighborhood House Emergency Food Box Program shelves fully stocked.

    Is this the date folks should bring their donations to MAC or i this the date thy will be sold to benefit the Emergency Food Box program or both? At the last membership meeting we were discussing the changes going in terms of Empty Bowls at the Blues Festival, but this was not mentioned.
