From Slow Food Indy regarding changes to the September 20th dinner event:
Chef interest was so great we keep figuring out how to add more into the event, we had more volunteers than we could accept, and all around interest had seemed enthusiastic for the Vegan Farm to Table Dinner scheduled for Sept. 20th at Beasley Orchard. Sadly, ticket sales have remained so low that we must cancel the event as originally planned.
At the cancellation of the five-course Vegan Farm to Table Dinner at Beasley’s Orchard, Slow Food Indy has been invited to join the Earth House Community Dinner on Sunday, September 20, at 5:00 PM, expanding the weekly community dinner into a fabulous Vegan Pitch-In.
Please plan to join us:
When: 5 p.m. Sunday, September 20th
Where: The Earth House, 237 N. East St. (SE corner of New York & East St.s)
Dinner will be held in the basement, where Jenxie’s Vegan & Vegetarian Cafe is located.
What: Vegan Pitch-In, FREE – bring your favorite vegan dish, featuring a local ingredient of the season, to share, along with your reusable dinnerware! Don’t know how to prepare a vegan dish, we’ll be sure to have plenty of food, so join us anyway and learn what makes a tasty vegan meal. (Some of our fabulous event chefs will be attending the pitch-in as well, so you still get to enjoy their talents!)
Why: Slow Food Indy remains strong in our commitment to provide welcoming vegetarian and vegan options at our events, as well as holding events to highlight the pleasures of meat-less meals. Just as we also plan to hold more events that highlight the vibrancy of ethnic food traditions represented in Indianapolis.
The Earth House is also dedicated to gathering individuals and organization working to build an informed and sustainable community. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about the many fabulous events offered at the Earth House.
Throughout 2010, Slow Food Indy will be holding a number of Farm to Table Dinners and other events as part of fund raising efforts to send Indianapolis area farmers, chefs, food educators, and students as delegates to Slow Food International’s bi-annual Terre Madre event. Terre Madre 2008 brought together over 6,000 delegates representing 1652 food communities from 150 countries. Slow Food Indy was proud to send nine delegates, through the support of all who attended Farm to Table Dinners and other fund raising events. We look forward to your support again in 2010, as we support the growth of our the sustainable and locally-minded food community in Indianapolis by sending another group to be supported, inspired and educated through this amazing international event. We’ll tell you a bit more about Terre Madre and plans for 2010 at the Sept. 20th Pitch-In.
Those interested are invited to take the seven-block walk north to visit the new location for the Indianapolis Winter Farmers Market, at 901 N. East St., following the dinner.
