A creative event on Saturday used beer and pottery to help feed the hungry.

Snoodle Ceramic Studio and the North Pole Bar came together to support Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank with an event called "Beers for Bowls." Visitors received free beer in exchange for creating their own bowls on potter's wheels. The bowls will be donated to Second Harvest's Empty Bowl event on April 15.

"It's to support families," said organizer Tonya Borgeson. "And for me it's about the idea of sharing my passion for the creative process and how the creative process can change people's lives, by just an experience like today."

Between this event and a Glaze-a-Thon next Saturday, Borgeson said they will be donating more than 600 bowls to Second Harvest. Those will sell for about $20 each.
