Woodworkers: Get creative and help a great cause!

October 11, 2017

Since 2005, the Sears Trostel Bread ’N’ Boards fundraiser has raised $260,123 for the Food Bank for Larimer County. And wecould not have done it without the beautiful works of our local woodworking community.

As we prepare for the 12th Annual Bread ’N’ Boards event on Saturday, December 2, we once again look to our woodworking friends to show their stuff!

The Signature Boards Silent Auction plays a big part in the success of the event, where over 1000 cutting boards are sold to benefit the Food Bank. Woodworking artisans donate their time and creativity in creating one-of-a-kind, custom hardwood cutting boards for the auction, that can bring in contributions from $35 to $400 each. ALL proceeds go to the Food Bank.
Help us fill the silent auction coffers for this year’s fundraiser. GET INSPIRED and donate a board to the cause! 

Create a wooden masterpiece (or more than one!) to help provide inspiration for culinary delights in the kitchens of the lucky recipients. Woodworkers from novice to professional are encouraged to participate.

Signature Board donors receive a Bread ’N’ Boards t-shirt, and those who wish to promote their professional talents may display brochures and business cards at the event.

Please let us know you're on-board to donate a Signature Board.  Email Jet Manalo at or call him at the Riverside store, 970-482-1928. Completed boards for the auction are due by Thursday, November 30.

The Food Bank for Larimer County provides food for children, seniors, single moms, chronically ill and struggling families in our community. With the support of Food Bank employees and thousands of volunteers, the Food Bank has distributed enough food for 7.72 million meals this year. Established in 1984, it is the only Feeding America clearinghouse for donated food in Larimer County. Feeding America is the nation’s largest food bank and food rescue network.

Thank you for your help in feeding the hungry in our community!
