Empty Bowls: Good food, good cause.

Looking for a way to get out and about, and to benefit a good cause at the same time? This might be your jam. Tickets are now on sale for the 4th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser, taking place at Ridgeview High School in Redmond March 26.

Here's how it works: students from the ceramics classes at Redmond and Ridgeview high schools craft artisanal ceramic bowls. Then the culinary students from Ridgeview whip up a meal of hot soup, rolls and other refreshments for attendees to enjoy. Attendees walk away with a full belly and one of the ceramic bowls. The proceeds from the event this year benefit Jericho Road, which provides food and transitional housing to the local homeless population.

"...It's a great combination of showcasing the beautiful work of our high school students—both the bowls and the food, and fundraising for a good cause," said Ridgeview High School Assistant Principal Jensine Peterson.

You've heard about sanctuary cities. But what about sanctuary restaurants?

Here's how it works: Sanctuary Restaurants is a joint project of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United and, created with a mission of "a place at the table for everyone." Rather than being a legal distinction, the Sanctuary Restaurants movement is meant as a symbolic gesture aimed at giving restaurant workers, employers and customers a set of known locations that are committed to "creating affirming and safe environments in our restaurants for all," and to "stand with diverse communities to help protect their liberties, dignities, and freedoms."

As of late February, more than 300 restaurants, including Strictly Organic Coffee Company in Bend and numerous others in Eugene, Portland, Astoria and other Oregon locations, had signed onto be part of this symbolic movement.
