The Kingfield Board of Directors is working on their 2023 engagement plan and event list and while the entire calendar is not available yet, we do know that there is a commitment for hosting our traditional Winter events: Kingfield Empty Bowls and the Community Sap Tap/Pancake Breakfast.
Kingfield Empty Bowls will be held on Sunday February 12, and celebrated as part of a broader “Souper Bowl Sunday”. If you are interested in helping out at the event simply contact and you will be sent the volunteer sign-up sheet after the first of the year. Tasks involve serving soup, cutting bread, providing kitchen support, dishing up desserts, greeting neighbors, collecting donations, as well as assisting with set-up and clean-up. This event supports Nicollet Square, an affordable Kingfield housing option for youth who have been homeless or aged out of foster care, as well as KFNA’s affordable housing advocacy and educational work.
The Community Sap Tap/Pancake Breakfast is a little harder to pin the date down on because it will happen when the sap starts flowing (some time near the end of March to the middle of April). This newer event is held in partnership with the Park Board, and is focused on teaching people how to collect and process maple sap, as well providing an incentive to gain this knowledge by serving it on the pancakes! Just email to be put in touch with the volunteer sap-tap and/or breakfast team.
