Eat for Equity, Lanesboro Local, and the Lanesboro Arts Center are coming together for a delightful evening of food and celebration. Eat for Equity is returning on Saturday, February 16 to put on a delicious dinner, locally grown and prepared by volunteers as a celebration of the of the abundance and nourishment of Southeastern Minnesota foods. The event will benefit Lanesboro Local’s efforts to strengthen our rural communities as we connect local growers, producers and artisans with local buyers. The Lanesboro Local non-profit group has successfully connected over a hundred producers from all over the region to local and visiting buyers through their Marketplace in downtown Lanesboro, across the street from the theaters.

The Eat for Equity Dinner will be hosted by Peggy Hanson and Frank Wright in their home at 500 Calhoun Avenue South in Lanesboro. Starting at 5:30 with appetizers and drinks, a buffet dinner will be served at 6:15 and will be followed by dessert. The menu has been planned based on local food donations. It includes Pastured Poultry Pot Pie, Salad with Black Walnuts, Sweet Potatoes and Fresh Pea Shoots, Roasted Maple Butternut Squash, Handmade Cornmeal Bread, and for dessert—Pavlova with Wold’s Strawberries and Kappers’ Whipped Cream.

Tickets are not required. Suggested donation is $25, or more as generosity suits you. Bring your Valentine. Bring your friends. Call the Marketplace for more information at 507-467-2944 or stop in during winter hours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10-5.

What is Eat for Equity? Eat for Equity is a national organization led by former locals, Emily Torgrimson and Laura Nethercut, which was founded on the belief that much good can be done when people come together to share good food for a worthy cause. Their motto is “Eat, drink, do good and be merry!” Events are cropping up all over America as this simple idea is spreading.

The same evening at 7:30 Butch Thompson will be performing jazz and ragtime on the piano at the St. Mane Theatre in Lanesboro. Tickets are $15/ $12 for Lanesboro Arts Council members.
