Powderhorn Empty Bowls (PEB) is a wonderful community-building event that will celebrate its 9th Anniversary this coming November. Organized and carried out by a core group with the help of approximately 180 volunteers from the neighborhood this is an all-day event held on the first Friday in November each year. Local potters (including professionals, kids’ programs, and college departments) donate hand-made bowls, bread baked onsite and local volunteers cook soup all in an effort to end hunger. Neighbors come together, select a bowl, have a meal of soup and bread, and for this they make a donation.
Powderhorn Empty Bowls has been a supporter of Youth Farm for years, sponsoring our summer lunch program and the community lunches we host as part of the program. Our Youth Farmers always looks forward to helping prepare soup the week of and volunteering in the bowl room and our staff make sure to meet for lunch that day at the park.
Thank you Powderhorn Empty Bowls for being a great partner throughout the years! We look forward to this years event on November 6th!
