What is Bowls for BrainPower?

Bowls for BrainPower is a community fundraiser. Patrons can make a free-will donation to our hunger cause and receive a beautiful, hand-made pottery bowl and a meal of soup and bread! The bowl goes home as reminder that many children face an "empty bowl" all too frequently. Proceeds go to buy food for children in ISD 191 (Burnsville-Eagan-Savage) through BrainPower in a BackPack. 

Bowls for BrainPower is a collaboration between the Burnsville High School Art Department (Tim Hammes) and ISD 191 Community Education Youth Service Program (Fay Finn). Many hands will make light work, and together we will make a difference in children's lives!

What is BrainPower in a BackPack?

BrainPower in a BackPack is ISD 191's way to send weekend food home with children who might otherwise go hungry from lunchtime on Friday until breakfast on Monday, when they return to school. Bowls for BrainPower, helps raise funds for this hunger relief project, which is funded though donations. More than 450 children currently receive BrainPower food each week.
