Help us Fill The Bowl!
We're very excited to be participating in the Capital Area Food Bank's Fill The Bowl campaign during this month of November. All proceeds from your purchase of a handmade bowl ($25) go to the CAFB and provide 62 meals to people in need. Created locally by Golden Rabbit in Arlington, the 3-cup bowls are made of carbon steel with porcelain enamel and are oven and dishwasher safe. Be sure to participate in our recipe contest for the next three weeks (details below)...we can't wait to see how you fill the bowl!
The CAFB is the largest hunger-relief organization in the Washington metro area, feeding 12% of its residents – more than 500,000 people. They work through about 500 food assistance partner non-profits who provide food from the CAFB as well as address the root causes of poverty.
As a way to inspire each other and help bring awareness to the Fill The Bowl campaign, we'll be holding a recipe contest over the next three weeks: November 2, 9 and 16. To enter, simply submit recipes for soups, salads, etc. to fill the bowl! Use the hashtags #FillTheBowl and #WGGFillTheBowl. You have all week to post your photos – winners will be selected Saturday night and announced in the following week's newsletter, along with your photo and recipe.
Winners will receive a $50 credit to their WGG account with the option to donate it to the Capital Area Food Bank. Let's get cookin'!
