Empty Bowls Soup Event Helps Stock Food Banks


Approximately 80 people attended the Empty Bowls fundraiser, hosted by the Mount Si High School Cheer team, on December 8.  They raised $1,000 to be split between two local food banks. This community event was a group effort with art classes at Twin Falls and Chief Kanim middle schools creating unique ceramic bowls, Mount Si Cheerleaders serving soup, Culinary Arts students assisting with food preparation, and student musicians providing live music for those in attendance. 


Special thanks to 10 restaurants for donating delicious soup for the event (listed alphabetically): Ana’s Mexican Restaurant, Black Dog Arts Café, Copperstone Family Spaghetti Restaurant, Copper Public House, Infusion Bar and Grill, Little Si Restaurant and Lounge, Mount Si Golf Course, North Bend Bar and Grill, Rio Bravo Mexican Restaurant, and Twede’s Café.  The Snoqualmie IGA also donated drinks and bread for all.
