Eureka Compass Vegan Food, a grocery store and pop-up space in St. Paul’s Hamline-Midway neighborhood aims to host one community dinner each month. January’s will benefit chef Sean Sherman’s organization NĀTIFS that works to reestablish Indigenous foodways. The deadline to reserve meals is this Wednesday at noon. Those interested can pick their spread up from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the 30th. Last month’s dinner raised $2,100 for Zedé Harut’s Rebellion Relief Mutual Aid Fund and served 190 people.
The fully gluten-free, nut-free and vegan menu will feature enchilada casserole, pozole, yellow rice and beans, chopped romaine salad with a creamy cilantro dressing, and cinnamon sugar scones. Orders have no suggested cost and are fully pay-what-you-can. Half of all funds will go to NāTIFS. Anyone in need of a hot meal is also encouraged to contact Colin at Eureka.
There is flexibility with how interested parties can order. For example, if you would like to order ten meals for $10 and bring them to an encampment or family in need, arrangements like this can and will be accommodated.
Plain croissants and gluten-free spicy s’mores muffins for $3.50 and chocolate hot red pepper and coconut filled croissants for $4.50 will also be available for purchase. Guests may add up to six of each baked good (eighteen in total) to their order if they like.
Send orders to firstname.lastname@example.org with a window of time for pick up, the number of meals you’d like, whether or not you’d like to order any additional baked goods, and how much you’d like to contribute.
Orders must be placed by noon on Wednesday, January 27th.
