Pilar’s Foundation will hold a fundraiser on Sunday, May 7 to raise funds for Doctors Without Borders’ work with earthquake survivors in Turkey and Syria.
During “Pilar’s Stands with Turkey and Syria,” Pilar’s Foundation will package meals to-go. Meals will include authentic tamales and other contributions from local restaurants.
From 3-6 p.m, meals will be packaged for easy pickup from Zion Lutheran Church at 1501 W. Liberty, Ann Arbor.
Meals will consist of a mix of Pilar’s vegetarian and vegan tamales with Pilar’s signature tamale sauce, casamiento (Salvadoran black beans and rice) and curtido slaw (cabbage salad).
The tamale selection is vegan black bean, jalapeno and cheese, and black bean and cheese.
No meat options will be available due to the added cost and resources of meat production and in solidarity with the Turks and Syrians.
Other local restaurants providing ingredients, dishes and gift certificates include People’s Food Co-op, El Harissa Market/Cafe, Hyperion Coffee, B Green Today in Ann Arbor, TeaHaus, Townies Brewery, Brush Monkey Window art, Bløm Mead Works, York Ann Arbor Food & Drink, Cardamom Indian Restaurant and ZZ’s Produce.
Cardamom is providing rice pudding; El Harissa Market is offering a vegetarian side dish; Hyperion Coffee Co. is providing coffee; Tea Haus is providing tea and York and Bløm Meadworks are providing certificates.
Prices range from $75 to $175. A “small tamale meal” is $75, a “medium tamale meal” is $125 and a “large tamale meal” is $175.
No substitutions are available.
The deadline to order is April 30 to pick up a meal on May 7 between 3-6 p.m.
