When most people are winding their weekend down and preparing for the work week ahead on Sunday night, a crowd of arts, culture and community supporters will gather at Farm to Market Bread Co. for the first Bread! KC

event of 2014.

Founded in 2010, Bread! KC is a micro-financing organization that hosts public dinners and uses community-driven financial support to fund new and emerging projects.

Participants pay a small entrance fee, receive dinner and a ballot, and listen to artists present their projects. Participants cast their ballot for their favorite proposal and the artist who receives the most votes is awarded the funds collected through entrance fees.

To date, Bread! KC has awarded more than $15,000 to area artists and organizations.

Making their case for support this weekend are:


Pendleton Heights Community Garden

in Kansas City’s historic northeast area wants to build a community farm table in their community garden and orchard.


Seed-Savers of Greater Kansas City

, which promotes and propagates heirloom seeds through annual seed exchanges, is looking to build and restock their community seed library


Better Block Lawrence

, a project to redevelop community space, needs funds for materials, permitting fees, among other things.

For his first collaboration with Bread! KC, Todd Schulte of

Genessee Royale Bistro and Uncommon Stock is serving French Potage alongside fixings and green salad from Door to Door Organics, rustic French farm loaves from Farm to Market and beer from Tallgrass Brewing Co


Tickets are sold out for the dinner, but keep on eye on the

Bread! KC Facebook

page for more events in 2014.
