  • Distributed 13,400 hand-made bowls

Resulting in . . .

  • An amazing $223,000 dedicated to feeding the hungry!

Help celebrate our 10-year milestone and continue to raise money to fight hunger in the Powderhorn Community.



On November 4th, come together with friends and family for a meal of soup and bread. Choose a hand-made bowl for your meal, make a donation, and enjoy catching up with friends and family. When you leave, take your bowl home with you – now empty – as a 12140558_973754786001695_6080822106323689947_n.jpgreminder you’ve done something good to help your neighbors. Powderhorn Empty Bowls is a labor of love for hundreds of volunteers. This event would not be possible without help from local potters, gardeners, cooks, restaurants that donate soup, and everyone who helps with set up and tear down. We can still use your help!
