Birchwood Cafe supports local nonprofits whose work aligns with their "Good Real Food" values. Food connects us all (everyone eats!) and food systems are a critical point of action for addressing human and environmental health, climate change & social justice issues.
We’re so grateful and excited to be partnering with Birchwood in the months of April-June! We hope to see you at the Birchwood for soon!
Climate March Rally Hour
Monday, April 17th, 5-7pm, Birchwood Cafe
Actions speak louder than words, and there is no denying that the new administration is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities and the health of our families. It is the time to unite and resist.
Join us as we rally for the upcoming Science March and Kids' Climate March, happening here in Minnesota on Earth Day (April 22), and the People's Climate March, happening in Washington D.C. We want everyone to be a part of these massive movements, whether you stay in Minnesota or take a bus to mobilize at the capital. RSVP here; share and invite friends on facebook here.
Environmental Ancestry Story Circle
Wednesday, May 17, 6-8:30pm, Birchwood Cafe
Join Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light for a new series of storytelling circles, open to the interfaith community to celebrate unique family and environmental ancestries. These circles will be hosted by Muslim youth from the MNIPL Youth Leadership Team and will highlight stories the youth will collect in interviews with their family members about their family history.
Stories are powerful, they have the ability to connect us to a moment, each other, and our collective experiences. They share wisdom across generations and cultures. They remind us who we are. Come help us write the next few lines on YOUR page in the human chapter, by learning about your neighbors and their environmental ancestry. RSVP here; share and invite friends on facebook here.
BOOST Dine Out Night: Growing Climate Justice
Thursday, June 15, 5-10pm Birchwood Cafe
Dine out and do good! Birchwood is partnering with MN350: Building a Climate Movement in Minnesota and Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light (MNIPL) through our BOOST program to act now on climate justice. We have seen the horror stories on the news and increasingly, in our own backyards. We acknowledge that the food movement, the climate movement and the social justice movement are all one. And we come together to celebrate our differences, our unique interests and skills, our resources and our passions – working to build an empowered social movement that collectively acts to address the climate crisis.
Birchwood is donating 35% of their proceeds from dinner on Thursday, June 15 directly to MN350 and MNIPL as we work to build the climate justice movement.
