Eat For Equity is a wonderful volunteer-led organization that organizes fundraising dinners. Every month, they pick a different worthy cause to support, and for this month, they chose the Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness. (The Twin Cities Media Alliance had its turn last year.) Eat for Equity events draw a fun group of people, mostly in their 20s.
The menu for Saturday’s dinner, to be held at a private home in Plymouth, includes woodfire pizza, a spring salad and a surprise dessert, plus homebrew and more. (Wine and beer are usually available.) To see the address for this Saturday’s event, go to their Facebook event page.
The cost is very reasonable: a suggested donation $15-$20. Because all of the labor and most or all of the food is donated, most of the proceeds go to support the beneficiary organization. You don’t have to pay in advance, but RSVPs are requested; click here to let them know that you are coming.
Also coming up this summer: an Eat for Equity Festival on July 20 at Lily Spring Farm in Osceola, Wisconsin. Check the Eat for Equity Facebook page for updated information.
