Thinking About Food

Just a couple of quick food items for a weekend post.

First, the 4th Annual Great Native American Cook Off is set for April 21, 6-8 p.m. at the Minneapolis American Indian Center, 1530 East Franklin Ave., Minneapolis. It is a fundraiser for the Wicoie Nandagikendan, an important Preschool Language Immersion Program to preserve the Dakota and Ojibwe languages. You can show your support by attending the event, entering a dish, sponsoring a cook, buying raffle tickets, donating raffle prizes, or volunteering.

Registration for cooks is now available on line at

For more information or to help out, contact event coordinator Betty Jane Schaaf at or call her at 651-366-9175.
