Want to help a hungry child AND support the art programs in Walton County Schools? The Cultural Arts Alliance and Food for Thought are teaming up to raise funds for these two worthy causes.

logoThe Full Plate Project is a community-wide art project that will raise funds for critical programs in Walton County through the creation and sale of painted plates. Artists of all ages and skill levels will transform plates into works of art that will be exhibited and sold at the ArtsQuest Fine Arts Festival, May 8-10, 2015.

The net proceeds of the project will be split evenly between the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County and Food For Thought Outreach. The CAA’s portion will go directly back into the underfunded art programs of Walton County public schools. The other half will go to Food For Thought Outreach, which provides backpacks filled with easy-to-make meals so children can focus on their development and education, not where the next meal is coming from.
