St. Louis Park Emergency Program: Feinstein Challenge

March is Minnesota FoodShare Month, and the St. Louis Park Emergency Program (STEP) is participating in the Feinstein Challenge to help feed hungry Minnesotans. 

Since 1997, East Coast philanthropist Alan Feinstein has earmarked $1 million for anti-hunger charities. Participating charities have between March 1 and April 30 to gather as many food donations as possible.  The Feinstein Challenge then awards a portion of the million dollars to the organization; the award size is based on how much food is donated.

Fish Dishes From Around the Park

Fish is often considered the red-headed stepchild of the big three entrée meats. Unlike chicken, it doesn’t go well with everything. It can’t be as quickly and conveniently obtained as beef. As land-locked Minnesotans (Lake Superior notwithstanding), fresh seafood has to travel far to reach our plates, leaving us to resort to preservative-heavy options like lutefisk, definitely an acquired taste. Lock up the lye and dive into these modern dishes. We have samplings ranging from the Minnesota favorite, walleye, to the most exotic sushi rolls you could possibly imagine.

Vescio’s: A Family That Cooks Together

Nearly 100 years ago, a young Italian named Charles Vescio traveled across the Atlantic in search of his father, who had immigrated to North America. He searched New York and Chicago before coming to Minnesota, but unfortunately, never did find his dad (who family thinks might have ended up in Canada.)
