Harvesting Justice: Farmworkers, Food and You

Craft scissors are perfect for kids in the kitchen. These sous chefs are making fancy roast beet & beet greens salad.

Come eat a tasty organic dinner & discuss food justice at an Earth Day Dinner & Film Nite next Wed eve, Apr 25th, at First Universalist Church @ 3400 Dupont Ave So, Mpls.  It’s family-friendly w/ kid activities and child care. Kids will see film about Cesar Chavez while adults watch “The Harvest”.  Starts 5.30pm, Dinner at 6pm, Films follow. 

I’m making dinner w/ volunteers, plus, I’m doing my Aunty Oxidant interactive cooking demo@ 5.30pm.  The full show, “Little Locavores”, was developed for the Mpls Farmers Market in 2009. The kids help me make salads and act in skits about Antioxidants and Locavores, and if there’s time, we play games like “Hot Kohlrabi”, “Name That Vegetable” or “Farmer Obstacle Course”.

As usual, my menu is gluten-free & vegan.  Is this hard to plan? No. Will it be wholesome, toothsome yet gobsmackingly good? Yes.

ALL ORGANIC MENU:  Beet Slaw, Quinoa Salad*, Tossed Greens, Pureed Parsnip, White Bean & Celery Soup w/ Parsley Coulis, local bread & Hope butter, gluten-free beet chocolate cake, vegan chocolate pudding, navel oranges. Bean quesadillas available for picky kidlets.
