Feast Mass #8 must have been our best yet: mouth-watering vegetarian North African-inspired mezze by Chef Nadine Nelson of Global Local Gourmet, a dream-come-true location amidst baby greens in the Food Project's Dudley Greenhouse, tunes courtesy of DJ Malagón, 10 brilliant proposals (posted below), the happy culmination of Public Kitchen, and our largest grant to date: $1,500.
A huge congratulations to Cassandria Campbell & Jackson Renshaw for their project Fresh Food Generation, a farm-to-plate food truck that will serve low-income neighborhoods and provide youth employment. Read the full proposal here.
Thanks and peace to all our presenters, from Nataka & Bobby's Aquaponic Greenhouse, to Ethan's White Walls mobile artspace, to Antonio's heavy-hitting rap single The Bank Attack, only to name a few. It was a great diversity of ideas. If you were there, you know what a difficult decision it was to vote for only one. We truly wish we could fund them all.
The success is all due to our wonderful presenters and our generous guests. Whether you gave $30 or $3, you helped us raise an unprecedented and unexpected grant of $1,500. Thank you for being there. And please come back for the next Feast Mass. Stay in touch by checking the website, facebook, or by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always looking for extra hands to help make it happen.
