Corktown Community Brunch this Sunday

The Second Corktown Community Brunch is coming together nicely. We've connected with an incredible crew of neighbors and friends to create an awesome gathering for more neighbors and friends.

Here's the all local/organic and zero waste* menu:

Baked Polenta and Black Beans stuffed with roasted potatoes, winter squash, onions and spinach, drizzled with either vegan cheese or local, raw & organic dairy cheese.

A side of hoop house greens and sunshoots from Raw Detroit Community Farms tossed in our house dressing.

A selection of homemade Kimchi, Salsas and Brother Nature's Habanero Hot sauce.

Fresh baked winter squash bread to satisfy your sweet tooth.

We'll also offer a special house blend herbal tea, locally roasted coffee with all the fixin's and apple cider.

Tours of the Hoop Houses, discussion of local issues/events and conversation to inspire our collective genius will also be on tap.

This month we're stepping it up a bit and making food for 60. Please be aware that this is a first come, first served event.

This event is put together with an all volunteer staff and the cost for our high quality local/organic ingredients is around $5 a plate. The suggested donation is $5-15, and we encourage you to help others and tip the scales in favor of the events continued success by giving more if you are able.

You'll also help us a great deal by mindfully clearing and cleaning your place, composting any organic waste in the provided and marked containers, washing your dishes and kindly encouraging and assisting others who may not be aware of these aspects to do so as well. Active participation from community members and friends is vital to the continuation of this event and the creation of others like it.

* Zero Waste - I'm projecting that we'll end up with about a handful of actual non-recyclable and non-compostable WASTE while feeding 60+ people. I'll be sharing how and why we are able to do this on Sunday.
