Empty Bowls Glazing Days starts on Friday
Bob Mark is the manager of the food bank at the Community Cupboard in Leavenworth. If you ask him, he will tell you that the demand for services has steadily been on the rise. In 2014, the Community Cupboard food bank served an average of 800 people per month, which has almost doubled since 2009 when 475 people were assisted. But he will also tell you that the generosity of the Leavenworth community helps keep the shelves stocked at the food bank. "Food donations are the mainstay of the Cupboard," says Mark. "But we are also very fortunate to have monetary donations from fundraising efforts that help us purchase food to augment food donations. Empty Bowls has been substantially supplementing our food program since the event started in 1996."

The Glazing Days for the 2015 Empty Bowls are scheduled for Jan. 23 to 27 at the Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort. Participants select a bowl crafted by a local potter then decorate their own bowl with ceramic paints. After firing, the bowls are then picked up at a community soup supper on Thursday, March 19 at Cascade High School. Local restaurants and bakeries donate the soup and bread.
