The KFNA Board meets the 2nd Wednesday each month. Each meeting begins with a Community Forum which is your chance to bring your burning question, idea, or suggestion to your volunteer Board of Directors.
The City of Minneapolis Public Works will perform street improvements on 1st Avenue South this summer. These improvements will focus on the removal and replacement of the asphalt pavement, and may include curb repair in areas where needed.
Property owners along 1st Avenue South will receive an assessment, which will pay for a portion of the project. This assessment is based on the uniform assessment rate, in which a standard rate is applied to all properties not only along 1st Avenue South, but to all the properties on streets being resurfaced in 2020.
A neighborhood meeting will take place on
Wednesday, February 12th, 6:30 PM
Central Gym Rec Center,
3400 4th Avenue South, Minneapolis
and a public hearing is scheduled for
Tuesday, February 18th, 10:00 AM
Minneapolis City Council chambers

Kingfield’s ready to host its 9th annual Kingfield Empty Bowls community dinner to benefit Nicollet Square, and we would love to see you there! Empty Bowls is a single-evening event that combines art, food, local businesses, nonprofits, and lots and lots of neighbors raising awareness and funds to combat hunger in our neighborhood. Nicollet Square is an organization that provides affordable housing and a supportive environment for youth who have experienced long-term homelessness or have been in the foster care system.
The concept of Kingfield Empty Bowls is simple: Attendees make a donation ($20 per bowl is suggested), select a beautiful handmade bowl donated by a local pottery artist, enjoy a hearty meal of soup prepared by local restaurants, and then keep their bowl as a reminder that many of our neighbors need food and housing.
Vegetables being chopped, meat being seared, soup beginning to simmer, bread being baked, sugar being spun…and friends texting and calling friends to make plans for dinner tonight at MLK Park. The sounds and smells of activity and excitement…
The neighborhood is busy getting ready for Kingfield Empty Bowls Tonight!
A huge shout our to our restaurant partners who sustain us today at our Community Center…and many, many other days each year in their own spaces. Today they donate their time and talents to support youth in our community who have experienced homelessness and reside at Nicollet Square, a project of Beacon Interfaith.
Bring your neighbors, bring your family, bring your checkbook/cash/creditcards and join KFNA at MLK Park from 4-8 PM tonight, Thursday February 6!
