Our pal, Jennie the Potter, works with a group of other folks on Powderhorn Empty Bowls, a community-based, volunteer-driven organization who’s goal is to eliminate hunger from the neighborhood in and around Powderhorn Park in MPLS.
They throw each and every bowl by hand. Then, for an in-kind donation they fill your bowl with homemade soup. Eat the deliciousness and then keep the bowl. The funds generated go to neighborhood resources to help put an end to hunger in MPLS. They have already made a significant impact in their short history so far.
This is the stuff this country SHOULD be more about.
You can check out their great work [and donate!] at powderhornemptybowls.org
