Calling All Artists!

This spring Edmonton’s Food Bank is participating in a national campaign called Every Plate Full from May 28th to June 8th. This campaign raises awareness of the challenges food banks face during the spring and summer. This is a time of year when donations to Food Banks are traditionally low while the need remains high.

As part of this campaign, Edmonton’s Food Bank is planning to hold an online auction of plates decorated by local artists. We are asking artists to draw or paint on a ceramic plate to raise awareness of summer hunger and help raise funds to fill the shelves at the Food Bank.

If you like, come for a tour of Edmonton’s Food Bank and get inspired.

If works of art are food related that’s great, if not that’s great too! The only limit to your creativity is that they be family friendly and non-partisan/non-political. We’d like to have the completed works in to the Food Bank by April 27th.

Let us know if you’d be interested in helping us with this fundraiser. If you have another piece you’d like to donate for this auction let us know, we’d love to see it and share the creativity of our city! Every $1 raised can help us provide food for 3 meals!
