As of May 2013, some of the featured empty bowls not used at the Empty Bowls event are for sale at the Red Lodge Community Foundation, 122 South Hauser in Red Lodge. The price for each beautiful bowl is $5.00. For more information you can call the foundation at 446-2820. We expect them to go fast so hurry in and check them out! Empty Bowls will not be held in 2015 but look for another exciting fundraiser!
Red Lodge Fun Run for Charities: BareTooth Cupboards is proud to be part of the Red Lodge Fun Run for Charities. Funds received from past Fun Runs have been our largest single source of fund raising each year. Last year’s 2015 Fun Run helped raise $7883.00. We are so thankful for the support from the community. Every single dollar will help make a difference in the lives of hungry people in Carbon County.
Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday Cards: In addition to stocking and distributing food through-out the year, during the 2015 holiday season, BareTooth Cupboards will provide gift cards for families usually accepting a Christmas or Thanksgiving basket. This concept adopted in 2014 went very well.
Community Garden: Rocky Mountain Flower Farm and Nursery has been kind enough to let us use a plot of their land as a community garden. In the spring, any resident can sign up for a small piece of ground. The only requirement is that the "farmers" share a portion of their produce with BareTooth Cupboards. This guarantees that throughout summer and fall we have home-grown vegetables for our clients. Any who are interested in participating can contact BareTooth Cupboards.
Bridger Food Bank Project: A major accomplishment for the Food Bank in 2009 was the launching of a Food Bank located in the community of Bridger. We identified a small group of people in that community in need of food assistance. In March on 2009, we began our Bridger Outreach Program delivering food to these people. This outreach program was operated out of the trunk of one of our board members vehicle. In the Fall of 2009, as a result of hard work and dedication, we officially launched the Bridger Community Food Bank. This effort was further supported by a $2,000.00 Grant from the Steele-Reese Foundation via the Montana Community Foundation. We forecasted serving 600 people over the course of 2009…amazingly, the Bridger Food Bank fed nearly 1,000 in 2009! We continue in 2015 to provide assistance by way of mentoring and previously agreed to financial support. We look forward to seeing them fully independent in the near future.
