Charitable Project: Buy a Bowl, Feed 100 People

On January 22nd, 2022, Inspired Minds Art Center is celebrating its 2nd birthday by giving back to the community that has been so supportive of the arts. The art center is teaming up with local artists and restaurants to raise money for the Hays County Food Bank by hosting an Empty Bowl event entitled, “Buy a Bowl, Feed 100 People.” Every handcrafted, ceramic bowl sold at the event will come with a choice of gourmet soup from local restaurants. The proceeds from each $25 Empty Bowl purchase will be donated directly to the Hays County Food Bank to feed 100 people!


Goal: $6000 ≈ 24,000 meals

In January 2021, we raised $3000 ≈ 12,000 meals for the Hays County Food Bank and handed them a check in early February. We were able to support them during a time of desperate need during financial and food shortages. In 2022, we aim to double what we raised last year! $6000 will provide around 24,000 meals!


The Need: 240 Ceramic Bowls

We are seeking 240 ceramic soup bowls of all sizes, shapes, and colors donated by area potters and pottery students.

  • Bowls must be:

  • Ceramic

  • Food-safe glazed

  • 2 cup volume

  • No cracks, crevices, or pinholes

  • No sharp/rough edges
