Capuchin Soup Kitchen fundraiser

I am really thrilled to be a part of Tammy's Tasting Supper Club dinner on Saturday, July 25th in Ann Arbor. Tammy Coxen and will be a benefit for Earthworks Urban Farm and the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit, and their Earthworks Urban Farm project. Currently, the majority of their produce is incorporated in the meals at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen and they are planning to install a commercial hoop house (similar to a greenhouse but uses only heat from the sun) to provide greens for the soup kitchen and for marketing to the public. If you'd like to reserve one of the remaining spaces at the July 25 dinner, please email me at momskitchen at comcast dot net ASAP with your food restrictions and preferences. We're happy to accommodate a variety of food restrictions, such as gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian.

Tammy will be offering at minimum 8-course tasting menu, designed to highlight
seasonal and local foodstuffs. The dinners are designed to be wine-friendly, but are BYOB (or better yet, bring some to share). A donation of $50 is requested per person. Tammy had a wonderful dinner last month to support the Pittsfield Grange's group Preserving Traditions.

Hope to see you there!

Encourage all who can to participate in this fundraiser, and to get involved with volunteer work at soup kitchens and other worthwhile causes. You can do it yourself or, even better, as a family. Check out this brief video for a little inspiration -- ahamoment.com/pg/moments/view/4578 -- it's the "aha moment" of a mother and son as they realized the power of volunteering together. Hope you like it.

Thanks,
