Harvest Meal

Join us for a Harvest Meal in which you will be able to enjoy a series of corn-related dishes created by renowned chef Susana Trilling and tamales by Pilar Cabrera and Reyna Mendoza (also highly qualified chefs in their own right). Singer Martha Toledo will also be joining us on this day of celebrating nature’s fruits.

The MAMAZ cooperative is organizing a lunch event to raise funds. The funds will go towards covering the legal fees involved in establishing the group as a non-profit organization. In this way, we will be able to receive tax-deductible donations, which will help us to train members of the cooperative and cover administrative costs. MAMAZ has two objectives. The first is to raise consciousness about the loss of our native crops and hence our cultural identity. The second is to promote often-unseen women artists and train them to continue improving their creative and promotional skills.

Los boletos están a la venta en Amate Books en Alcalá #307 o en Casa Colonial en Miguel Negrete #105.
