There will be 17 bowls made available for adoption on Monday, April 25th. Six of them are by BFF founder Michael Mittelman, and the other 11 are by guest turner Dan Crafton. The time is a secret so that this website doesn’t crash from all the enthusiasm. Prices range from $60 to $225.
Can’t wait until Monday?
If you are impatient, or just want to know that you got your bowl, you can bid on the bowl up for auction. The auction ends Monday, so good luck and happy bidding.
Bowls for Food is having its first auction! In addition to our usual system of listing bowls on a first come, first served basis, we have a beautiful cherry burl bowl available to the highest bidder. As usual, payment is in the form of a receipt for a donation to a food bank or food pantry.
Thanks to all the generous donors we have now generated over $30,000 in donations to local food banks from bowls. This is exclusive of the over $5,000 in other donations in honor of Bowls for Food. Wow! Thanks also to the guest turners who gave their work to the last batch which generated over $2,500. They are boxed up and will be shipping shortly.
Several woodworkers and bowl turners have reached out to me to ask if they could donate some of their work to Bowls for Food. I responded to the first three who were close by and collected these 25 bowls. Big thanks to Dan Crafton, Thurston Tarter, and Eric Weinstein for donated their work for this next batch.
ABC World News Tonight with David Muir picked up the story from WCVB and added to it. The result? So many fans the web site went down again. Hopefully I have beefed it up enough to withstand all the enthusiasm. In case you missed it, you can watch the video here:
WCVB Boston came for a visit to talk to me about Bowls for Food and watch me turn a bowl. Thanks to Erika Tarantal and her team for a great story and for spreading the word of BFF. The response has been overwhelming, but worry not, I am turning new bowls!
Just in time for the end of the year, I’ve released five new bowls. There are some more, but I am offering them to the people who gave me the trees they came from. It’s so nice to make something out of a tree that has meaning to someone.
BFF Donors have given over $62,401 to their local food banks so far. Wow!

What is this?
During the COVID-19 Quarantine of 2020, I started turning wooden bowls. I also wanted to help those struggling during this time. Look for an availab bowl you like. Add it to your cart and check out. Make a donation to your local food bank, and I will mail that bowl to you.
