The Fresh Food on the Table season does not end when we put our garden to rest for the winter. As our amazing garden apprentices begin to leave Good Cheer and Whidbey Island, Good Cheer shifts the focus from growing our own produce to buying from local growers to keep fresh produce in the Food Bank throughout the winter.
The Empty Bowl Soup Night will be held on Sunday, October 20 at the Bayview Hall, from 4 – 6 pm. There will also be musical entertainment to enjoy while you visit with friends and savor the delicious soups.
The soups will be made by local chefs as well as some varieties of the Food Bank’s famous hearty soups. The bowls will be a variety of bowls made especially for this event as well as bowls that have been donated to Good Cheer.
The funds raised at this event will be used to purchase produce from our local farmers, Deep Harvest Farm and Ebb Tide Farm. By purchasing local produce, Good Cheer practices our commitment to “Buy Local – Donate Local – Feed Locals.” We are committed to the health of our clients as well as the local economy. The produce the Food Bank receives helps our Food Bank clients enjoy a healthier diet throughout the year. We all benefit as the community is able to eat better foods.
To add to the festivities, the winner of the TRACTOR RAFFLE will be drawn at the event!
