Community Dinner This Friday!

Greetings friends and neighbors,

We have a special announcement about the coming RaVE community dinner.  Evening Magazine will be coming out to film us for an upcoming show. This is going to be a great opportunity to show Seattle, and beyond, what we are doing in our community. I hope to see you all there.

This community dinner is part of Rainier Valley Eats! (RaVE!) – a project in the Rainier Valley to connect our community through growing, sharing, and eating fresh food together. Find out how you can get involved and benefit from our collaborations and collective power.

Friday February 17, 5:30-6:30pm
Rainier Community Center
4600 38th Ave S,
Seattle, Wa 98118

This month’s theme is “Healthy Soul Food” in honor of Black History month.  There is a rich history to the roots of soul food and this will be reflected in our meal:

  • Gumbo
  • Cornbread
  • Greens
  • Cabbage salad
  • Black Eyed Peas salad
  • Sweet potato pie
  • and MORE………

Cooking starts at 3:00pm and we welcome anyone who wants to get down in the kitchen. We will have 20 positions that need to be filled and ‘Good Food Bags’ will be provided for free to those who help out in the kitchen, containing many of the produce items off the menu.

In order to manage the amount of people that we are now getting at these events, I NEED TO KNOW WHO IS COMING TO HELP COOK!! Please give me a quick response to let me know if you plan to come help with the cooking and set up. Please spread the word to family, friends, and anyone in the Rainier Valley you know would appreciate breaking bread with good people.

I look forward to seeing everyone,
Leika Suzumura,
Community Kitchen Program Manager
