So much food for a good cause right now. Last week Eater reported that MiiR was opening their flagship store in Fremont, sending proceeds from food, drinks, and outdoor products to people in need, and that Cheese Wiches, a Cheese Wizards offshoot, is primed to be Seattle's first charitable food truck.

Now, enter a pop-up working for change. Project Feast, a Tukwila-based non-profit that offers culinary training to local immigrants and refugees, will host a Feast for Change pop-up on Thursday, May 28, at the Pike Atrium Kitchen. $50 gets you the complete seven-dish "tasting  experience" with plates from as many countries, including Eritrean Injera Rolls, Iraqi pastry Laham Ajeen, and Indian Papdi Chaat street food, plus one wine/beer ticket. Go VIP at $75 and add a 30-minute Essential Knife Skills class hosted by Chef Buck. Live entertainment will be provided by Dreams of Majesty, a rock band of Burmese refugees.

Project Feast was founded in 2013 by Veena Prasad (Veena's Market). Along with free training programs for refugee and immigrant cooks, the nonprofit also supports participants with job readiness skills, and raises funds through catering, cooking classes, and now Feast of Change.

The pop-up kicks off at 6 p.m. on May 28; find tickets and a complete menu here.
