Brief History of this Event:
In 2009, the Boston Localvores, an informal group interested in supporting the local food movement, approached Haley House Bakery Café with the concept of a tasting event spotlighting locally sourced soups and the "Souper Bowl" was born. Seven years ago, Massachusetts College of Art and Design's Clay for Change student organization proposed a partnership to make bowls for this event (as part of the “Empty Bowls” movement), to support Haley House's 50 year old Soup Kitchen (located in the South End since 1966). For the past several years, MassArt's Center for Art and Community Partnerships has collaborated by coordinating community bowl-making workshops that add to the richness of the event.
