Posted by Ashraf Ashkar, Office of Community Engagement on Friday, Apr. 19, 2013

Event Date/Time: Monday, Apr. 29, 2013 5:30 pm
Location: Morris Area Elementary School


The 6th annual Bread ‘N Bowls event will take place on Monday, April 29, at 5:30 p.m. in the Morris Area Elementary School cafeteria (201 South Columbia Avenue, Morris, MN 56267). 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 and providing support for local organizations. All are invited to attend.

Soup is served in handcrafted bowls that guests may take home after the event. A wide variety of soups will be served, including vegan and gluten-free options, as well as bread, desserts, and beverages. 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 (PRCA) 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 children’s art programming.

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, Assumption Catholic Church, 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, PRCA, Ranch House, Subway, Willie’s Supervalu, and the University of Minnesota, Morris Office of Community Engagement.
