10th Annual Powderhorn Empty Bowls: Friday, November 4, 2016 · 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.


Please note that this year volunteers are encouraged to wear their T-Shirts from the past PEB Events - as we are introducing something new this year - aprons! Volunteers will be given a PEB apron to wear during their shift and it will be returned to PEB at the end of the shift to be utilized again next year. This will allow us to route more of the donated funds directly to feeding folks!

If you encounter problems registering, send an email to pebinformation@gmail.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible! We can't wait to work with you again this year.
