Empty Bowls - Help OPA Feed the Hungry

Tue, March 14, 2017 4:23 PM | Gretchen Lambert

It's Empty Bowls at the Waterfront Blues Festival time again! Time to help feed the hungry, because no one should be hungry. OPA partners with the Oregon Food Bank and Georgies for this event. The Food Bank sets up the big tent, June 30 - July 4, Georgies hosts a Throw-a-thon, and stores the donations, we donate our work, make pots at the Throw-a-thon, and sell them at the Blues Festival. 100% of the money raised from donations goes to the Food Bank.

 Gretchen Lambert and Robin McDonald are the chairs this year and we are now signing up volunteers and sellers. Sellers keep 75% of their sales (the rest goes to the Food Bank), get 2 four-foot shelves the last 3 days of the event, agree to work three shifts plus either set up or breakdown, donate approximately $100 of work, and know they are doing a truly positive thing for their community.

The Throw-a-thon at Georgies is scheduled for June 16 - 30 this year.

Contact Robin McDonald, levasseurr@comcast.net, to volunteer. Contact Gretchen Lambert, gretchen.lambert@gmail.com, to donate work.
