The Hungry Planet Pop-Up Fundraiser
The Table Community Food Centre, and Community Chef Judy Dempsey are excited to announce once again, the return of one of Perth’s all-time favourite restaurants – The Hungry Planet. Last year’s Pop Ups were such a success, we decided to bring it all back again! Many people have fond memories of the Border Farm burger and the Santorini sandwich among other delicious creations. Do you remember the brown paper menu on the walls, the busy open kitchen and the sense of community?
For two days only, Saturday June 4 and Saturday June 11, Judy will be cooking from the Hungry Planet’s original menu. These special “pop-up” events are a fundraiser for The Table Community Food Centre’s community meals program which offers free, nutritious and delicious meals three times a week. In 2015, The Table served almost 9,000 community meals to over 400 individuals.
The pop-ups will feature many of the Hungry Planet’s most popular dishes. Everything will be made fresh as you would expect from The Hungry Planet. Dishes on the eclectic, globally-inspired menu will highlight a variety of local ingredients. Weather-permitting an outdoor picnic area will be created so diners can enjoy their meals with other Hungry Planet fans and reminisce about the good old days. All main dishes will be priced at $25 and Judy plans to have a few of her famous side salads and desserts on hand.
Orders must be called in the week prior to each event by leaving a message at 613-326-8593. Organizers expect popular items to sell out and encourage people to order early in the week. The menu and other details are available at (www.thetablecfc.org) and “The Hungry Planet Pop Up” Facebook page.
The Table Community Food Centre uses the power of good food to grow, health hope and community. The Centre is an affiliate of Community Food Centres Canada, a growing network of similar organizations across Canada. In addition to the Community Meals program, The Table runs a Good Food Bank, Food Skills Programs, After School Programming, Advocacy and Social Justice Programs and a Community Garden.
