The next Morris Community Meal will feature Native American foods, and Sarah Eckel of the University of Minnesota Morris’ Office of Community Engagement told KMRS there’ll be a new item offered at tonight’s meal: deer.
The meal will feature produce from the U of M’s Native American Garden and will also offer squash soup, a black bean and wild rice salad, mashed potatoes or wild rice, fry bread with chokeberry sauce, and maple candies. It will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. tonight at Faith Lutheran Church in Morris, preceded by a 5 p.m. Gratitude Ceremony. Honoring Native traditions, elders will be served first.
