Thanks to LiveEastie.com, WalkBoston, and East Boston Main Streets for making this a rich community event for all!
Straight from Boston’s Director of Food Initiatives, Edith Murnane:
I hope you will join us and accept the Ben and Jerry’s bostonCANshare challenge. Support getting enough fresh, healthy food to those in your community. If enough people join in this campaign, we can make our community a happier, healthy, and hunger-free place!
How it works: Donate $1 to the Boston Bounty Bucks program and bring a canned good to Ben & Jerry’s for a $1 cone! So simple, so rewarding.
Join me in having a direct impact on our community! Visit Boston’s page on SoChange.com and help get fresh, healthy food to those in our community that could use a helping hand.
The 16th Annual Taste of JP event is coming up on Thursday, November 17!!!
This is an awesome night that brings out about 25 local food vendors (restaurants, caterers, and 2 –count em 2– breweries) who sample their wares all for a great cause. And there’s music with the deliciousness to boot.
That cause is ESAC, the Ecumenical Social Action Committee. ESAC is based in JP and has been around for 40 years. The organization does some amazing things, including a GED program for very high-risk young adults, foreclosure prevention and other affordable housing programs, an urban asthma initiative, and a peace garden in Egleston Square.
The Taste runs from 6:30 til about 9pm, and it will be held at Cedars Hall, 61 Rockwood Street, near the Pond. Get your tix today before they sell out–online at www.esacboston.org. $40 in advance, $45 at the door, kids and seniors $15.
Do good while eating well
First off, let me clarify that I am not actually a socialite. I just wish I was one. Maybe if I were perhaps born a “Hilton” or had a ridiculously rich husband, then it would be all good. But no. For now I am just your typical young professional, working in Boston and trying to lead an active social life. As a proud member of the ONEin3 Boston community, I like to explore the city in my free time and frequent local establishments (seriously, did I just use that phrase?) and thought it’d be cool to report on my more interesting urban adventures…
So, this past Sunday I went to the South End, which may not seem that exciting to many, but let me preface this by explaining that I hardly ever leave Comm Ave, where I live AND work. If you’ve never been or just haven’t been in a while, I’d recommend getting brunch at Metropolis Cafe on Tremont Street (especially if you love pancakes), then browsing the SoWa Open Market (open Sundays from 10am – 4pm). The whole neighborhood is quaint in my opinion and full of hidden gems, but the SoWa is really a hip place to check out, full of local vendors and food trucks galore. And make sure you go soon–October 30 is the last day of the 2011 season.
Until next time…
