Community Support Connections for January
Do you have your Kingfield Neighborhood Association EQUITY lawn sign? – Pick one of the last remaining ones up at Butter! they have a suggested donation of $10 but we’ll accept any amount!

We're providing support, contributions and donations to:
Kingfield Empty Bowls - planning committee meets January 31 with the big event coming Thursday February 8 from 4 to 8 pm at MLK park!
FullCycle the team from FullCycle hosts a pop-up dinner with the residents of Nicollet Square - then it's down for dessert at butter!
Lake Country School's annual January production - this year, the lovely Much Ado About Nothing (Jan 31- Feb 2).
and continuing efforts for:
*City Advocacy work – continues as our city imagines lifting wages. We are living it out here at Butter through a model that doesn't use tip compensation to provide fair, living wages for our staff. Dan is a part of a group of businesses working with the city on their support for One Fair Wage and small business support. Dan is also lending his support to One Fair Wage campaigns in other parts of the country this year. A new Restaurant Owners Discussion Group has formed as well to provide support and resources to owners seeking to make all of this work for the bottom line as well.
*State advocacy efforts– You'll find me working to remove the health care administrative burden from businesses and creating a universal/single payer system. Need a way to get connected? TakeActionMN! Shop your values through Main Street Alliance!
*National advocacy efforts – we’ve joined a national movement of restaurants to offer a refuge from hate – “Sanctuary Restaurant – A Place at the Table for Everyone” Check out the NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION - January 20! Our part will connect with "Feed the Resistance: Sanctuary Restaurants in Support and Solidarity with the Women’s March” We're aiming to help caffeinate the crowd at the MNxMN 2018: Beyond Resistance Event in St. Paul.
we're expecting the following groups at butter during January to use our Community Table
5th– Our Saviour’s Men’s early breakfast group (7 am)
8th – Wilderness Canoe Base women’s group (9 am)
our usual YMCA after-groups Tues/Thurs @9 /Weds @7
And join up with other neighborhood writers - Wednesday evenings at 6:30
and it seems that Erin Murphy's run for Governor is sort of based around our Community table too! find her team there often!
