On Sunday night I went on a trash run with the freegans and picked up a shopping-cart-ful of fruits and veggies to be cooked and served at my home on Monday night. I was to host.
The event went great! I would guesstimate that about 30 people came in and out through the night and we all shared a fabulous meal consisting of curry, soups, and pies made from rescued asparagus, green beans, sweet and non-sweet potatoes, tomatoes, cauliflower, tofu, butternut squash, apples, lemons, herbs and spices, and a whole lot of bread. We all had stimulating conversation, excellently healthy (vegan) food, and a great time (despite that, admittedly, I suck at card games).
I plan on partnering with an organization working for peace in the city of NYC. If it works out, I'll be seeking sponsorship from my friends and family to raise money for myself and the organization. More details and nifty videos soon to come.
