The Landing Market, Decorah, will host a traditional Ukrainian meal to raise funds to benefit the people of Ukraine. This event commemorates a year of resistance by Ukrainian people, following full-scale invasion which began February 24, 2022.
Cost is $20 per person. Freewill donations also accepted. No reservations required.
Ukraine native Maryna Bazylevych Nading and her husband Scott Nading will prepare Borscht, a type of vegetable stew which is vegan, and “Herring under a Fur Coat” salad (Oseledets pid Shuboiu), a salad made with herring and vegetables.
Event proceeds will benefit two highly regarded volunteer relief efforts in Khmelnytskyi, Maryna Nading’s hometown. The first, Zahyst, has been working on war relief in Ukraine since 2014. The group delivers aid to civilians and soldiers on the frontlines, connecting people who want to help directly with those who need help. The second is a collaboration with a tireless volunteer Viacheslav Ivakh, a brother of the late war hero Dmytro Ivakh for whom a school in Khmelnytskyi is named. Viacheslav Ivakh has been delivering humanitarian aid and generators to Ukrainian orphanages and health care facilities in the vicinity of the war zone.
