5th Annual Empty Bowls NE! (Mpls)

Suggested Donation: $20 (includes handmade ceramic bowl + all you can eat soup + no one turned away!)

"Empty Bowls," an international grassroots effort to address hunger, is coming again to the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District for the 5th year in a row and our second year at the Solar Arts Building

event space: Solar Arts by Chowgirls!

ABOUT EMPTY BOWLS NE

Its concept is simple: Empty Bowls NE - Minneapolis asks local potters to provide handcrafted ceramic bowls and local restaurants to provide delicious soup; guests of the community event pay whatever they can, keep the bowl itself (as a good reminder of the empty bowls in the world and in our community), and 100% of proceeds raised go towards three terrific NE Minneapolis hunger causes. Similar projects have been held for years in nearby communities: St Catherine's University, Columbia Heights, Hopkins, Rogers, Northfield, Plymouth, Maple Grove, New Prague, and Powderhorn Park in Minneapolis.

Empty Bowls NE has secured over 500 handmade ceramic bowls. Many Northeast potters have been Empty Bowls participants in surrounding areas, but until recent years had no means to join the effort in their own community. Expanding on that community spirit, Empty Bowls NE has again partnered with Edison High School (Minnesota) Fine Arts department to both produce pottery and provide students exposure for their work and experience interacting with prominent local artisans.

This year's Empty Bowls NE will also feature a "Pottery Lottery" where the community can purchase raffle tickets for original artwork donated by local artists. The proceeds from this raffle will be donated directly to Edison High School's Fine Arts department to support their arts programming.

Last year, Empty Bowls NE raised over to $20,000 for local hunger causes. This year's goal is to raise $25,000. The funds are distributed to Helping Hand Food Pantry, East Side Neighborhood Services Senior Food Programs, and The Sheridan Story.
