Event description

Description

What is a Party with a Purpose? A gathering of persons with a common purpose of supporting an organization and their mission through food and philanthropy. This fundraising event is to celebrate the abundance of Anishinaabe Akiing (or Mother Earth) and support Indigenous movements to protect our land, water, wild rice, and traditional lifeways. Tickets are $10 and include appetizers and wine. All proceeds from the event benefit Honor the Earth.

Special guest Beth Dooley will share experiences with Minnesota food movements and demo a wild rice recipe in the Sprout kitchen. Beth, who has been involved with the local food movement for over 20 years, is the author of numerous award-winning cookbooks about Heartland food traditions. Her food memoir, In Winter’s Kitchen: Growing Roots and Breaking Bread in the Northern Heartland, was published in 2015 by Milkweed and was a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award. In Winter’s Kitchen “personalizes the path from farm to fork with heart and skill” (Wall Street Journal), demonstrating that even in a place with a short growing season, food grown locally and organically can be healthy, community-based, environmentally conscious, and—most of all—delicious.

At this event, the attendees are welcome to share their own stories of food developments, concerns, and histories unique to the region.

*If you would rather pay at the door, please send an RSVP notification to Dawn Espe (despe@regionfive.org).

Catered by Prairie Bay Grill.

Sponsored by ArtPlace America, Region Five Development Commission, Milkweed Editions, and Sprout.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
