The Leavenworth Empty Bowls Festival is the primary fundraiser for the Community Cupboard Food Bank, a program of Upper Valley MEND. Every year proceeds from the Artist Bowls auction and the festival as a whole supply the Cupboard with healthy and nutritious food options, provide food bank clients with Veggie Vouchers for use at the Leavenworth Farmers Market, and help to address the growing demand for food bank services. Since 2009 the number of local families requesting food assistance has increased by over 80%.
We are honored to have so many wonderful and talented local artists and potters lend their time and talents for this unique community event. We hope you enjoy the auction, and we wish you the best of luck at winning one of these amazing works of art!
Thank you for your support!
