11th Annual Powderhorn Empty Bowls: Friday, November 3, 2017 · 11am–7pm
Powderhorn Park Building · 35th St. & 15th Avenue South · Minneapolis, Minnesota
Come together with your friends and neighbors for a community meal of bread and soup to help raise money to feed those who are hungry in our neighborhood. Pick out a handmade bowl for your meal, enjoy visiting with your neighbors, and when you leave, take your bowl home with you–now empty–as a reminder that you've done something good to help your neighbors.
Powderhorn Empty Bowls was started in 2007 by five neighbors and potters who met at the Powderhorn Park Pottery Program. Their mission, to promote art, provide sustenance and promote the common good has been carried out every year since, with the help of donations and hundreds of volunteers. Every year hundreds of neighbors and community members gather together to help end hunger. These people choose a hand-made bowl that has been donated, which is filled with soup made by volunteers and local businesses and accompanied by bread made on site by volunteers.
For this, we ask for a $20 donation.
When finished, wash your bowl and bring it home. Enjoy it and have it as a reminder of all the empty bowls in your community, across Minnesota and around the world. Also leave with that bowl feeling good, knowing that on this day, you did something to feed people in your community.
This year, we served approximately 1,850 people over 150 gallons of soup in gorgeous hand-made pottery bowls!
Thanks to you (and $20 at a time) we will be able to gift nearly $30,000 to organizations in the neighborhood who have Missions that match with ours: Feeding Folks!
Stayed tuned for details on our giving!
