Mount Si’s Empty Bowls fundraising dinner raises $1,000 for local food banks

With more than 80 people attending their annual Empty Bowls fundraiser, the Mount Si High School cheer team raised $1,000 for the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank and the Fall City Food Pantry Dec. 8.

Empty Bowls is a nationwide fundraiser that raises money for community food banks. Bowls hand-made by students are sold at a community dinner event. All of the money raised is then donated to the food banks.

Students from Chief Kanim Middle School, Twin Falls Middle School and Mount Si High School created bowls for the event. Students form the Mount Si Jazz Band performed live at the event as well.

The event also received support from local business including IGA, North Bend Bar and Grill, Rio Bravo, Little Si Restaurant, Mount Si Golf Course, Twede’s Cafe, Black Dog Cafe, Copperstone Family Spaghetti Restaurant, Infusion, Ana’s Family Style Mexican Restaurant, and Copper Public House.
