2014: an exceptional year for Empty bowls Perth

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Empty Bowls Perth raised more than ever before at the event hosted by Foodsmiths in March and at the Festival of the Maples.  Once Scotiabank Perth added their promised $5000 matching gift, donations totalled $24,500.  The Table received a donation of $7500. Donations were also made to YAK, Food for Thought, the Lanark Food Pantry and The Guatemala Stove Project.
The Table is very grateful for the generous, on-going support by Empty Bowls Perth.  Thank you to the amazing potters who not only donated their bowls but their time to coordinate the project;  Foodsmiths and Riverguild who hosted successful events; local restaurants who filled the bowls with soup; Scotiabank management and employees who raised money throughout the year; and to everyone who took a bowl home.  Finally, thank you to Jackie Seaton for the inspiration.
