When you think about the stress at work, the chores that need finishing, taking care of the children, walking the dog, paying taxes, and any other thing that it means to be an adult, don’t you wish you could just become a kid again? Eat for Equity Stamford must have read our minds. Their first meal in Stamford will be an amazing meal on 10/20, full of twists on childhood favorites. Yes, those meals that you crave and you just “need” to have. Those kind of meals that make you happy and boost up your spirits. The kind of meals that make you feel like a kid again. In no coincidence at all, the charity they are supporting with this meal is Kids In Crisis. You can sign up to be an eater, a chef, a meal helper, or to even put events together by clicking here. When you go, a $15-20 donation would be great, though we’re sure they’d accept more from you.
Here’s what you can expect:
- Tomato basil soup
- Gourmet grilled cheese
- Butternut squash mac and cheese
- Homemade apple tarts
As a refresher course, here’s info from our previous post to help you understand E4E’s mission:
Who they’re helping
E4E helps puts meals together using local ingredients in order to raise money and awareness for groups that fight inequities in education, the environment, health, and opportunities. In addition, they will help local organizations to make short-term changes and to bring about change to the community to bring about self-sufficiency. Check out all the non-profits that they’ve helped so far.
Here’s how it works:
E4E brings people together to create fun and exciting themed meals using fresh ingredients from local sources. Depending on who volunteers, each event (once per month or a few times a year) could take place at a person’s house, an outdoor space, a park, or anywhere else that will be awesome. The chefs, also, volunteer their services and help to put together a killer meal for everybody who attends. In addition, volunteers help to clean dishes, serve, and to put together the event.
Oh, we’re missing an essential part here: the volunteers to come by and eat lots of great food. There’s a suggested donation of $15-20 for the meal, but more is always welcome. All proceeds from that meal will then be donated to the local nonprofit organization that E4E decided upon for that event. E4E’s first event will take place October 20. Check back for more info and check their FB page, too.
