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.

, , and 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.

I wonder if Mr. Henry is a fan of "Boogie Nights"...

I feel like I'm familiar with many neighborhoods, but no neighborhood is as community-oriented as Kingfield. A great example is Kings Wine Bar. If you've ever been there, you'd notice how well staff know customers, but not just as customers but as neighbors, too.
