Empty Bowls THIS Thursday, Feb 7

Handmade bowls + handmade soup = an event to build community and raise funds for Nicollet Square, a home for formerly homeless youth at 3700 Nicollet.

Please join community members on Thursday, Feb 7, 4-8 pm, at Martin Luther King Park, for this great event.

Nicollet Square is home to 42 formerly homeless youth.  Now, with Nicollet Square open for two years, some of these youth have been at home in our community for longer than they were homeless.

Sponsored by the Kingfield neighborhood, “Empty Bowls” is a one-night event where handmade bowls are collected and the community is invited to a soup dinner.  Last year this event drew over 200 people and raised over $4,000 for Nicollet Square.

Empty Bowls Kingfield now joins the long-standing Powderhorn Empty Bowls in raising neighborhood funds and building community to address hunger and homelessness.
