Mamie Taylor’s restaurant has teamed up with not-for-profit Not So Fast to give back to its neighbourhood community this holiday season. Not So Fast, a charity that promotes healthy food choices on the Downtown Eastside, has challenged Chef Tobias Grignon to create a signature dish using frugal and heathy ingredients from a very short list of affordable dried goods, high-protein nuts and legumes, and seasonal vegetables.

Rising to the occasion, he’s created Sunchoke and Goat Cheese Pierogies served on Braised Lentils with Roasted Kale and Walnuts ($18), available at the Chinatown restaurant.

From December 1 to 14, every signature Pierogi dish sold will benefit Not So Fast’s “Think Inside The Box” Friday food program at the Strathcona Community Centre

The foundation of a wholesome meal for four, each dry goods starter box costs about $2 and contains rice, beans or lentils and a recipe that features low-cost, seasonal produce such as kale and root vegetables.

Since the program began last month, over 150 Downtown Eastside families have benefited from Not So Fast’s “Think Inside The Box” meal starters.
