Recipe for Change – FoodShare – A night in pictures.

Yesterday’s Recipe For Change event was amazing, delicious, and a delight to attend. In addition to being a great experience, it was also for a great cause FoodShare, and in support of their fantastic educational programs and other campaigns. It was a great venue for mingling with food wizards and chefs (and asking them if they were able or willing to cater a vegan wedding…) Here is my evening in pictures where I remembered to snap one: Donna Dooher, Mildred’s Temple Kitchen Vegetable Tagine   Jesús Gomez, FoodShare Vegan Sushi in Savoy Cabbage leaves

Eating with a Cause: 1 Week – 3 Fundraisers

My usual partner in eating, JC, is currently in Fabulous Barcelona on business, so yesterday I went to the Chili For Charity – All You Can Eat Chili Fundraiser at Sadie’s Diner (504 Adelaide Street West, Toronto) by myself. I love that Sadie’s does these events and for a variety of causes, it just makes me like them more. They’ve held these fundraisers for the Toronto Vegetarian Association, Animal Ark II, and one of my favourite groups – Toronto Cat Rescue (the organization we found Emmiecat from). I had three bowls of delicious chili, handfuls upon handfuls of tortilla chips, entered into some TVA Raffles (I hope I win – there was a T-shirt there that was oh so soft) and heard updates on projects friends are doing. So overall, great evening. Then on Friday there is a fundraiser for Harvest Noon Cafe – Check it out on facebook – Locally Grown: A fundraiser for Harvest Noon Cafe– The Harvest Noon Cafe in the GSU building on U of T’s St. George Campus at 16 Bancroft Avenue, Toronto. Harvest Noon Cafe is a 100% volunteer run restaurant/cafe/student eatery, with a focus on serving food that is locally, sustainably, and organically grown. Add to that, it’s also organized (in part) by fellow blogger Willie, from Until We Eat Again. The big one this week is on Thursday (tomorrow! I’m so excited) FoodShare is having a Recipe for Change fundraiser.
