Comfort Food at Comfort Station
Continuing Comfort Stationʼs role as an intersection of culture, arts and living history in Chicagoʼs Logan Square, weʼre fired up to introduce Comfort Food at Comfort Station, in collaboration with Hugh Amano ( http://foodonthedole.blogspot.com/). Founded on a monthly series of neighborhood potlucks, Comfort Food aims to bring all members of our community together in a forum inspired by sharing and exchange of food and ideas about food.
The Comfort Food Potluck
The Comfort Food Potluck is a relaxed junction of tradition, perception and revelation of our experience with food. Free of pretense, open and welcoming to all, we aim to gather and share our food with each other with but one requirement: all food must be homemade by you and yours, based on the food you ate growing up. Does your mom’s meatloaf with canned tomato sauce on top still elicit waves of nostalgia when you think of it? Perfect. Did your grandmother teach you to make tamales the right way? Bring it! Thereʼs no competition; weʼre not looking for the next great dish. Instead, weʼre looking to meet more people in our community, and learn more about each otherʼs history and traditions.
The first Comfort Food Potluck will be held Sunday, June 9, 2013 at 4:00pm. Subsequent potlucks will happen monthly, and will be posted on Facebook and the Comfort Station website at www.comfortstationlogansquare.org.
Sign up directly on our Facebook wall by listing what you will be bringing, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Weʼd like to get a collection of recipes to eventually make available to everyone, so please send a recipe if you can!
The Comfort Station is in the heart of Logan Square at 2579 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Please bring ready-to-serve food items and appropriate serving utensils. It should be noted that we are only able to serve items, not cook or heat them. Plastic plates, bowls, cutlery and paper towels will be provided.
The potlucks are free. A donation jar will be out to collect any donation, large or small, to directly benefit the Comfort Station and to cover the costs of supplies for the potluck.
Comfort Food at Comfort Station is exploring other potential food-centered events that are focused on community and tradition. Ideas and submissions are welcome and can be directed to email@example.com
