E4EMPLS September: The Aliveness Projectposted: Friday, September 16th, 2011
This month, support Minnesotans living with HIV/AIDS.
The Aliveness Project serves one out of four Minnesotans living with HIV/AIDS, with a daily meal program, food shelf program, case management, and alternative health services. Its mission is to encourage self-empowerment and provide direct services for people living with HIV/AIDS. The Aliveness Project started in 1985 as a small support group sharing potluck meals, and has become a strong leader and resource in the HIV community in Minnesota.
Last month, you raised $1200 for Centro de Trabajadores Unidos en Lucha (CTUL), and its work with the most vulnerable segments of U.S. society, including immigrants, people of color, and women in the workplace.
Pick up a plate and a fork and feast for the Aliveness Project:
Watermelon, Feta, Olive, Arugula Salad
Harissa Beef Roast or Harissa Chickpea Stew with Tomatoes
Semolina Cake with Orange Syrup and Raspberries
Ginger Kombucha Cocktails
Homebrew from Driftless Brewing Company
Mixed Precipitation will perform a few songs from their “rowdy and delicious” Alcina’s Island: A Picnic Operetta, which they’re performing in community gardens across the Twin Cities through October 1.
