Making Room in Your Drawers

In Foodie on February 5, 2009 at 12:13 am


This month Slow Food Spokane River (SFSR) offers the perfect excuse to clean out the kitchen, liberating unused gadgets, cookbooks and other items cluttering up the cupboard in pursuit of a worthy cause: The First Annual “Second Chance Kitchen Sale,” a March 7 fundraiser at Thomas Hammer headquarters in downtown Spokane. Proceeds benefit SFSR’s effort to promote a food system that is good, clean and fair. Don’t miss this chance to recycle your gently-used countertop appliances, utensils, bake-ware and other kitchen items—like the iced-tea maker you got as a wedding gift that has yet to see the light of day. Or the old George Foreman Grill that seemed like a good idea in the ‘90s but which now darkens a large chunk of real estate on your ever-diminishing countertop. Meanwhile, those cute little dumpling presses have been floating around in the utensil drawer for years with nary a use. Get them out—as in out of the house. Even commercial equipment is welcome, so long as it isn’t large (countertop appliances only). Drop off items now through March 1 from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon.-Fri. and 9 a.m.-noon Saturdays at Peters & Sons Flowers, 170 S. Lincoln; and now through March 5 Mon-Fri. 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m.-2p.m. at The Book Parlor, 1414 W. Broadway. For more information contact Kristi at 509.209.2851.
