Eat for Equity is partnering with Urban Roots at St. Paul’s Flat Earth Brewing Company for craft brews and a picnic feast featuring a menu inspired by the Urban Roots’ Cook Fresh program and prepared by a team of Eat for Equity volunteers. This is an open-house style event in a brewery. All are welcome. Come by anytime from 4 pm – 7 pm, with a short presentation from Urban Roots at 5:30 pm.
Urban Roots develops young leaders through programs that cultivate life and work skills and make critical connections to the world around them. 60 youth interns are engaged in a tiered program model, many returning for multiple years, earning as they learn about food, health, entrepreneurship and the environment. Their focus is on St. Paul’s diverse East Side community. Last year the interns raised over 13,000 lbs of fresh produce, restored 14 acres of urban parklands and prepared over 900 healthy meals.
