South County Artists Hold “Bowlathon” for Empty Bowls Fundraiser

Again this year, the South County Art Association supported the Food Bank by creating beautiful handmade bowls for guests to select and take home at the Food Bank’s annual fall event. Each piece represents an empty bowl in the community that we’re trying to fill.  Check out the story from the South County Independent.
And mark your calendar  - the Food Bank’s Empty Bowls fundraiser is Thursday, October 17. Tickets go on sale September 4!

Berry Popsicles

Make Your Own Berry Yogurt Popsicles

Popsicles and ice cream can make a great treat on a hot summer day. However, many store bought brands are filled with sugar and other processed ingredients. With calcium and loads of antioxidants, this Berry Yogurt Popsicle recipe makes a yummy and guilt-free treat.
