Kingfield Bakeries Team Up To Fight Hunger
Wheat from unusual art installation will make bread for needy.
Three local bakeries in Kingfield are joining in a unique art project designed to bake top-quality food for local food shelves.
Amber Waves, an installation by local artist Tom Henry, planted three gracefully curving rows of wheat in Bohemian Flats, a Minneapolis city park next to the Mississippi River underneath the Washington Avenue Bridge. The wheat was harvested earlier this summer, and was ground into flour and delivered to a number of area eateries this week.
Patisserie 46, Sun Street Breads, and Butter Bakery Cafe are turning the proceedes of that harvest into enough bread to theoretically feed "hundreds" according to the Amber Waves project's Facebook page.
The wheat harvested from Amber Waves created 160 pounds of flour, the page also noted.
