Food Pantry Update

Just an update on my pots for food project. Last week my friend Lisa gave me 20 bucks to buy some food. This load went to the 28th Street Church of Christ in La Crosse. I traded her one of my first raku wood-fired tea bowls. 20 dollars buys a lot at the WalMart.

I bought oodles of ramen noodles, parmesan cheese, several cans of tuna fish, a few cans of ragu sauce, a bunch of canned vegetables, and even some boxes of animal crackers for the little ones.

Pots for food is off to a slower start than I expected but I'm going to be throwing a bunch of pots this week, will be firing them next weekend, and will be hitting up my friends for donations. You're warned.

Help Stock the Food Pantries

I need some help. There are hungry people that could use some food.

I'm willing to trade a piece of my pottery for a donation to the food pantries in the La Crosse, Wisconsin area.

My friend "The Reverend" Mike put it best: "The pantry is getting low. We have some pasta, but people need some meat to go with it."

If I don't personally hit you up for a trade, contact me. We'll work a deal. If you don't want to give some food, give some dough. Lets get the pantries stocked!
