Making Room in Your Drawers

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.
