Upscale PDX restaurant Farm Spirit hosts casual block party supper, with all proceeds donated to local Black Lives Matter group.

Portland, OR fine-dining eatery Farm Spirit will host a casual block party dinner to benefit Black Lives Matter PDX on Sunday, September 4. Suggested price for the dinner is $10 to $20 at the door, with all proceeds to be donated to BLMPDX. Farm Spirit owner and head chef Aaron Adams will harken back to his Cuban roots by preparing a Caribbean meal based on his grandmothers recipes that will feature black beans, rice, vegan picadillo, and tropical vegetables. Earthly Gourmet, distributors of vegan and gluten-free foods, have agreed to donate all the produce for the event. Adams told VegNews that he is spearheading the fundraiser because his €œveganism comes out of the politics of anti-oppression. The connection between our support for BLM is rooted there.€
