Boston Eat for Equity Raises Funds for Tanzanian Public Health Workposted: Saturday, March 20th, 2010
After last month’s successful dinner for Partners in Health & Oxfam’s relief efforts in Haiti, Eat for Equity’s Boston contingent is organizing its next event for Friday, March 26th. This dinner will benefit Support for International Change http://sichange.org/, an organization which provides HIV-related services to rural communities in Tanzania. SIC organizes HIV awareness campaigns, trains peer educators and community health workers, and provides mobile voluntary counseling and testing, among other services.
For those of you unfamiliar with E4E, it started five years ago with a few friends at Boston University. We choose an organization doing good work, plan a tasty menu which relates either regionally or thematically to the organization (once Emily planned a ‘breast’ menu for Susan G. Komen), and invite all our friends. You (our friends) make a small donation for dinner, and all proceeds benefit said organization. By attending an E4E, you’ll meet good people, eat good food, and do some good. A win-win all around!
In honor of SIC’s Tanzanian location, we’ll be cooking up the following menu:
Zanzibar Pilau Rice
Spicy braised cabbage
Greens with tomato and onion
Kunde na nazi (Chickpeas in coconut milk)
Chicken groundnut stew
Plus a TBD dessert, and a few beverages of the alcoholic and non-alcoholic variety.
Here’s the skinny:
