We bring people together around good food to raise money for the greater good. We gather in different homes each month in different cities to eat local, organic meals made from scratch. And in coming together, we manage to do some small good for a community larger than ourselves.
Eat for Equity organizes monthly benefit dinners with a participatory, community-driven approach to giving. This simple idea of making themed meals, tied to a cause, has raised tens of thousands of dollars for local and international nonprofit causes, and has engaged thousands of individuals across the country. Eat for Equity has established communities in Minneapolis, MN, Boston, MA, and Portland, OR.
Eat for Equity builds an increasingly engaged, giving community of young adults; produces hundreds of plates of good, local food; and raises substantive financial support to grassroots, local, and international nonprofits. Eat for Equity envisions communities built around good food in which individuals come together and, through generous giving at all levels, are collectively able to create a better, more equitable world.
Eat for Equity is built on the idea that we all have something to give - whether time, energy and ideas, or money. Guests at Eat for Equity host dinners, nominate organizations, and give generously and regularly to a range of non-profit causes. A person who attends just one Eat for Equity will match their peers’ yearly average donation in a single evening (by contributing a suggested $10 to $20), though many guests give more, returning on a monthly basis. Each dinner is hosted at a different home, which allows the Eat for Equity community to expand by tapping into a different social circle each month
