This year we are looking for performers to entertain our Wenatchee Valley Empty Bowls dinner guests. If you are a musician, comedian, magician, storyteller or another type of performer please reach out to us and share your talent. We are unfortunately unable to pay for any performance at this time so please be willing to volunteer your time and talent to us with the only compensation being the opportunity to share in supporting our cause with other passionate and creative community members, and of course, the chance to showcase your abilities to a captive audience.
Wenatchee Valley Empty Bowls is an event designed to inspire creativity, build community and raise awareness about food insecurity. In Chelan and Douglas Counties an estimated 10,500 community members are in need of food assistance each month. The NCW Food Distribution Center, a program of Chelan- Douglas Community Action Council helps local food banks and meal programs better serve these community members. Wenatchee Valley Empty Bowls mission is to not only raise awareness about food insecurity in the community through the creation of artisan bowls but also raise funds to benefit the NCW Food Distribution Center and to increase the level of support that can be given to local hunger relief efforts.
Each year we at Chelan-Douglas Community Action Council have the Wenatchee Valley Empty Bowls event by hosting community paintings where people are invited to come and hand painted ceramic bowls. These bowls are then given and final coat of glaze and are fired to completion. After all the paintings have taken place, and the bowls are finished we host a simple soup and bread dinner where guest come and have their bowls returned to them with soup and bread donated by local restaurants. Both the paintings of the bowl and the intentionally simple dinner are intended to recognize that for many this meal is all that can be had, and for others, their bowls go empty.
