Feast #14 Recap and Thank You

Friday, May 19, 2017 | Posted by Nerissaruth
Helloooooo feasters! Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming out to Feast #14 and helping to make it a delight and a success!

As feast attendees and presenters entered through a shiny silver curtain and made their way through an enchanting land of antiques and upstairs to DS4SI, the room lit up with conversation as guests mingled, checked out the wall of proposals, and enjoyed freshly made cucumber water and iced tea.

Once everyone settled in, food was served! A very special thanks to multi-talented chef extraordinaires Teagan Lehrmann and Kendall Bryant for creating the menu and leading the cooking! The menu included:
-Spring rice noodle salad with sun butter pesto
-Purple cabbage carrot Slaw
-Roasted sweet potato salad
And for dessert...
-Cookie Dough ice cream donated by JP Licks
-GF Raspberry Crumble ice cream donated by FoMu

While we ate, we also got an update from our awesome Feast #13 winner, Gustavo Barceloni and his project "Café da Manha, Café da Tarde," a gathering of Brazilian families in Everett to make ceramic mugs, eat Brazilian food, and to have a conversation about cultural identity.

Then came the time to hear five magical, inspiring, thoughtful Feast #14 presentations:

The Bait/Switch Project: A city-wide experiment in casual art making. Submitted by: Lucy Valena

Somerville Neighborways: Improving children’s outdoor play opportunities by helping communities transform residential streets into safe, inviting Neighborways. Submitted by: Erica Quigley, Sara Brunelle - Heyday Collaborative, Mark Chase - Somerville Neighborways

TIT-tee’s: A philanthropic social commentary piece on non-symmetrical body types. Submitted by: Anna Stabler

Doula Training: Empowering Women in the Immigrant Community: Doulas change the world one birth at a time - sponsoring women from the recent immigrant community to become Doulas will in turn support recent immigrant women giving birth and empower the community!” Submitted by: Julia Dickinson

Prison Gardens in Bloom: Bulbs for a fundraiser, in which supporters will buy bulbs and our students will plant them in their prison gardens. Submitted by: Sarah Cadorette, Erika Rumbley, and Renée Portanova of The New Garden Society

All of the presentations opened our minds and our hearts. The votes were counted, and Doula Training: Empowering Women in the Immigrant Community was declared the winner! Thank you, Julia and Emilia!

We can't wait to see this uplifting idea become a reality!

Thanks again to all who donated time, space, resources, and of course to our presenters and attendees who all make Feast possible. What a beautiful community. Hope to see you SOON at the next Feast dinner party!
