Bowls for Open Arms Soup Social 

Craft can make a difference! Help support the efforts of Open Arms of Minnesota, a Twin Cities-based nonprofit that that cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals to people with life-threatening illnesses.

At the Bowls for Open Arms Soup Social held at ASI, enjoy a bowl of house-made soup from FIKA Café (vegetarian and meat options will be offered) with bread and a beverage. Plus, attendees will receive a handcrafted ceramic bowl made as part of the St. Kate’s Empty Bowl “Making” Project, which has benefitted Open Arms since 2011. St. Kate's students made a video last fall about the Project: https://youtu.be/Y7aMuz2V6XA

There will be more than 101 bowls available and advanced registration is encouraged. The purchase of each ticket supports two made-from-scratch meals for a neighbor facing a health crisis.
