Eat for Equity Stamford’s Second Feast Goes Red to Benefit American Red Cross

9 Nov

If you were able to hit up the last Eat for Equity event that centered on childhood faves to raise money ($1,078) for Kids in Crisis, you know what an awesome time it was.  People RSVP’d, noshed on some great food cooked up by RJ Mercede, talked, made new friends, drank, and enjoyed baked goodies from Meg Dalton.  Now, we’re not the kind of people that stick around at events because we usually get bored after an hour, but we stayed until the end here.  So much fun! 

At that dinner they announced that December 1, 2012 was the next dinner (RSVP here).  Well, they just released the vegetarian and heart-friendly menu and all the information, so we thought we’d share it with you:

Meg and RJ from Eat for Equity Stamford, Noming on Some Killer Grilled Cheese

Appetizer:

  • Zucchini Pancakes with Apple-Cranberry Compote
Dinner:
  • Red Heart Salad: Red Quinoa, Red Carrots, Radishes and Cranberry Dressing over Local Greens
  • Caring Casserole: Scalloped Beets and Red Potatoes
  • Curried Cross Soup with Squash, Apples and Pears

Dessert:

  • Gingerbread “Nutmeggers” with Gumdrop Buttons
  • “Spicy Sandy” Hot Chocolate

100 Prospect Street
Stamford, CT 06907
12/1/12 from  7:00pm – 10:00pm

Eat for Equity Stamford will donate 100% of the net proceeds of the event to American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief.

Now, some basics from our first post on Eat for Equity:

  • Eat for Equity is a community of people coming together to make a change by enjoying a dinner together.
  • Each Eat for Equity meal revolves around a theme and funds go to a local charity.
  • Eat for Equity meals use fresh, local ingredients.
  • Eat for Equity meals need eaters, chefs, hosts, helpers, and organizers (RSVP here).
  • Eat for Equity meals are free to attend, though $15-20 in donations are gladly welcome!  We say give more if you can!
  • Make sure that you follow them on Facebook or Twitter.
  • Make sure to RSVP to each event.
