Food for Thought will have a table set up in front of The Art Supply Depo the second Tuesday of June, July, August, and September from 6pm to 8:30pm. Artists are being asked to stop by the table and show off their talent. Bags and some art supplies will be provided. Bags will be displayed to showcase the undoubtedly amazing pieces that will be created throughout the summer. In addition, these bags will eventually contain lunch for an unhoused member of the Toledo community.
Participants may decorate as many bags as they would like, as Food for Thought's goal is to have 18,200 bags decorated for the year. Meeting this goal will allow each lunch distributed during a Saturday Morning Picnic to be its own work of art! If you are unable to make it out to an Art Walk this summer, bags can be picked up and dropped off during the Art Supply Depo's regular business hours.
