Help Birchwood Cafe -- a local, community-supporting and globally minded business with their Kickstarter
Where Minneapolis, MNWhen 11/24/2013
Birchwood Cafe is a Minneapolis restaurant serving locally sourced food bought straight from farmers and producers. In addition to creating a responsible seasonal menu, Birchwood teaches people about sustainable food systems via "crop mobs" -- events that get city folks out to farms -- and supports the health of their community by providing a Nice Ride station, sponsoring bike teams and leading the charge for nutritious food in the public schools. The Birchwood is a model for responsible, community-based local business, and the food is delicious. However, they really need to expand. Lines can be out the door and the kitchen staff has to DRIVE (sometime mid-shift) to a second kitchen offsite. Tracy Singleton, the owner, has secured approval for an expansion and come up with traditional funding but still needs $100,000 to start. She is turning to Kickstarter for this community support.
