Thank you to the neighbors that cooked, cleaned, organized, shoveled, greeted, and ATE SOUP! It was an amazing day in and outside of Butter Bakery, raising funds to support youth and affordable housing!
Thank you restaurants for sharing your amazing food that fed so many people and helped raise funds for even more!
Thank you volunteers for your time and commitment and flexibility as we figured out the cold, a new set up and location, volunteers being out sick leaving gaps, AND cold technology!
Thank you neighbors for coming and supporting this event, supporting youth at Nicollet Square, and supporting KFNA!
Preliminary numbers are good with 260 people taking food to go from outside and 61 dining indoors for a total of 321 tickets. Donations appear to be tracking at that amount which is impressive for the three hour event!
Sunday February 13, 11 AM – 2 PM, Butter Bakery Café, 3700 Nicollet
- Step 1: Bundle up and go to Butter Bakery, 3700 Nicollet, on Sunday Feb 13 from 11 AM to 2 PM.
- Step 2: Visit the Outdoor Bowl Tent and select a beautiful artist-created, pottery bowl to take home!
- Step 3: Move to the Donation Table and make a donation (suggested at $25 per person) to support Nicollet Square & KFNA as we fight hunger in your community.
- Step 4: Decide if you want to dine at Butter or take soup home for later.
Those opting to take soup-to-go will choose one quart of any of the three delicious varieties donated by Simpls; packaged with bread and cookies to travel (plus a coupon for another quart in the future!)
Those opting to dine on site (indoors or out!) can share their proof of vaccination and enjoy soup from either Victor’s 1959 Café, Clancey’s Meats, or Butter Bakery themselves. This will be served with crusty, fresh bread from Sun Street and Great Harvest, and a choice of delicious dessert from The Lowbrow, Royal Grounds, or Metro Meals on Wheels and Open Arms!

Dear Kingfield Neighbor – Understanding the Kingfield Neighborhood Association is as easy as ABC: KFNA is Always Building Community. Whether that is through discussions and exploration of hard issues like safety and racism, working side by side to improve our neighborhood, or through events where we celebrate being together, KFNA knows that community building work we do is the foundation of community safety.
The Kingfield Neighborhood Association connects neighbors to each other and to important actions and activities that help you amplify your voice in our city. For this work, we are asking for your donation to support KFNA today. The Kingfield Neighborhood Association (KFNA) needs your financial support for the work we do in our neighborhood. Due to changes that City of Minneapolis made in how funds are distributed to neighborhood associations, KFNA has a $30,000 budget gap this year.
What would your life be like without your neighborhood association?
- Less Informed? Who else would host civic discussions with stakeholders on both sides debating the issues, to make sure you are educated and engaged in making change in your community?
- Lonelier? Who else would organize Nicollet Open Streets, all-day Election Polling Party, and Light It Up Kingfield as fun, local activities, simply as a way for you to build relationships to your neighbors and be out on our streets in neighborhood streets?
- More Isolated? Who else would collect and send you a weekly e-news of everything going on in Kingfield neighborhood and work with block clubs to provide up-to-date public safety tips?
- Quieter? And who would organize your musically gifted neighbors into street parties like PorchFest and On Thursdays We Sing so we share and see the talents of all our neighbors?
A gift of any size at this time of year helps us close our year-end funding gap. A sustaining monthly donation of $10 or $20 helps us plan for the future.
