Keep your neighborhood strong by giving as local as possible on Give to the Max day, Thursday Nov. 14; giving to the Kingfield Neighborhood Association allows KFNA to be able to give back to our neighborhood in fun and helpful ways (think Empty Bowls, So Alive, Experience Nicollet Celebration & Celebrate 38, community gardens, art shows, public art projects like the Quilted Mosaics & Walldogs on Nicollet, Solarize Kingfield, and more!)
As your ultra-focused, Kingfield-centric community building organization that spends all of its time listening and working with you on Kingfield concerns, while also creating opportunities for neighbor collaboration and community building, we’re convinced that KFNA “gives to the max” back to the Kingfield community!
Visit our site and Give to the Max …and see the multitude of creative and fun thank you gifts your volunteer board has put together as a way to thank you for donating on this day!
Wednesday, Nov. 13, 6-7:00 PM

Wednesday November 6, 7-8:30 PM
MLK Park, 4055 Nicollet
Come join neighbors in planning for the 3rd Annual Feb. 6, 2014 event!
Fast becoming a tradition and an event that neighbors look forward to, Empty Bowls is a single day event that combines art and fresh food, local businesses and non-profits, and lots and lots of neighbors raising awareness and funds for community food projects in our neighborhood! Most notably the past two years KFNA has donated 100% of the profits from this event to Nicollet Square, which houses 42 formerly homeless youth providing them not only a roof over their heads, but healthy food in their bowls as well.
Please RSVP your intent to attend, or desire to be involved with your regrets at missing this second planning meeting to email@example.com
Join us today for the best tasting day of the year! It’s Eating for Art all day long and all you have to do to support the arts in Kingfield is to eat food at great restaurants. Once a year we bring local eaters and local restaurants together to raise money for arts programming and public art projects in the Kingfield and Lyndale neighborhoods.
By donating a percentage of their sales to public art these restaurants will help us increase art in our neighborhoods and help us create a welcoming environment that reflects the spirit of our community.

Vo’s – Just Opened on 35th & Lyndale
Make sure to post pictures of you and your friends, families, colleagues enjoying Eating for Art to our Facebook page. Each time someone posts, they’ll be entered into a drawing for a special prize. What could be easier? Plan a coffee date, set a lunch meeting, or take your sweetie to dinner on Thursday, September 19th. Your belly, and your neighborhood will thank you for it!

See a demonstration on making fermented cucumber pickles, dilly beans, beet kvass, and kimchi! On September 8th at the Kingfield Farmers’ Market, Chris Schleicher, KFNA Board Member, will show you how to turn vegetables found in abundance at the Farmers’ Market into jars of health-promoting condiments that will last the winter.
