Empty Bowls, Full Stomachs

Looking for something cool and charitable to do tonight? Check out Powderhorn Empty Bowls. It starts at 11am and goes to 7pm Friday (today) only at Powderhorn Park.

You get to pick out a handmade bowl (donated by local artists), make a free-will donation, enjoy homemade soup and leave with your bowl — now empty. It’s a reminder that there are bowls that need filling in the area, and that you’ve done something to help.

The proceeds will benefit organizations who literally fill bowls…the food shelf at the Division of Indian Work, Sisters Camelot and the Powderhorn Park kitchen upgrade.

Has anyone gone before? What was your experience?

    My wife has volunteered the past 3 years, and I’ve gone the last two. It’s always a lot of fun. A ton of neighborhood people, great pottery, and excellent soup. This year they had: black bean chili, curried lentil, and squash soup.

    Yeah, I had a great experience and was impressed by the amount of volunteers that were there to make it run so smoothly. I got a cool looking bowl too. I just wish there were a few extra chairs, but we made due.
