Gingerbread House Workshop Raises Money For Food Bank


The Central Farm Markets 2nd Annual Gingerbread Workshop to raise money for the Manna Food Center will take place on Dec. 8 in downtown Bethesda. The event, at the Hyatt Regency (1 Bethesda Metro Center), will work as a fundraiser for Manna, the county's main food bank that has partnerships with a wide-ranging network of community nonprofits. Central Farm Markets will provide all of the materials necessary for building the gingerbread houses and expert instruction from artist Harriet Lesser. Participants can sign up for a morning or afternoon session. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. One house, recommended for a family of up to four, costs $25 and two houses cost $40. Those interested can register here. Central Farm Markets says it will not accept walk-ins this year. The event sold out in 2011.
