Fifth Annual Bread 'N Bowls

Posted by Jenna Deardorff, Office of Community Engagement on Friday, Apr. 20, 2012

Please come and enjoy the 5th Annual Bread ‘N Bowls event taking place on Thursday, May 3, 2012 from 5–7 p.m. at the Morris Area Elementary School. Since its inception in 2008, Bread ‘N Bowls has established a reputation for its delicious food and beautifully crafted bowls. The project has come to be a valued event in the community, raising awareness about violence and poverty in our community and providing support for local organizations.

All community members are invited to attend this wonderful event. Tickets cost $10 per person ($5 for kids 12 and under) and include a meal of soup, bread, dessert, and beverage. Soup is served in a handcrafted bowl guests take home after the event. Family friendly music and children’s activities will also be available. All proceeds from the event are donated to Stevens County Food Shelf, Someplace Safe, and the Prairie Renaissance Cultural Alliance to provide needed food for families living in poverty, safety and advocacy services for survivors of violence, and scholarships for low-income children who wish to participate in the PRCA’s “art afternoons” or “prairie camp”.

Support for Bread ‘N Bowls is provided by a broad coalition of local businesses and organizations. The bowls are handcrafted by University of Minnesota, Morris ceramics students and Morris Area High School Art Club students. Food and supplies are donated by local organizations and businesses that include Amoco Food Shop, Bello Cucina, Buddie’s Bar & Grill, Chokio Café, Dairy Queen, Don’s Café, EcoWater, Federated Church, McDonald’s, Old #1, Pomme de Terre Foods, Pizza Hut, Pizza Ranch, Ranch House, Subway, Willie’s Supervalu, and the Morris Office of Community Engagement.

Tickets will be available at the door and before the event at Willie’s April 21-22 and the Student Center April 30-May 2. For more information about this event or to volunteer, contact Jenna Deardorff, Assistant Coordinator of Community Engagement, at 320-589-6457 or
