First I’ve heard of this event Sunday, or of Eduardo Crespi’s initiative:
Attached you will find an invitation to a Vegan Soul Food event on Sunday, June 20 at Café Berlin. It is being presented by Centro Latino to benefit Comedor Popular.
Comedor Popular, also known as “people’s diner,” is a creative (and never-before-tried-in-Columbia) project in progress at 609 N. Garth Street.
This Centro Latino initiative is aimed at fighting obesity fourfold: by establishing a plant-based eatery; cooking classes; wellness and obesity prevention programs; and a retail shop selling fresh, seasonal produce.
Please come help support this important project and meet Eduardo Crespi, director and founder of Centro Latino and the man who is making it happen.
Eduardo just got the building permits to start construction and is looking for building contractors who might want to participate in the construction process. He is asking for donations for construction material at this time. If you have any contacts in the construction trade who might want to donate materials or help in some way, please contact Eduardo at:
