One in four households in Navajo County and one in three households in Apache County are considered food insecure. On November 18th, the Northland Pioneer College Fine Art Department hosted an Empty Bowls Fundraising event to help raise awareness of food insecurity in our communities. For a donation of $10, attendees received a handcrafted bowl and enjoyed a hot bowl of soup from Persnikkity’s Cafe in Show Low and a warm piece of bread from Karen’s Country Bake Shop in Lakeside. All proceeds went to the Love Kitchen in Pinetop. For more information about the Empty Bowls project, contact Magda Gluszek at (928) 532-6176.
