People

My Lucky Tummy is a multinational popup food court. Every January & October we have a party for 400 (or so) lucky diners in Syracuse, NY.  

Tickets typically run $25, sometimes a bit more on the fundraisers.  The food rocks.  The people rock even more.

Most of our team have arrived in town as refugees, but others are here as students, via lottery or have roots going way, way back.  

Whatever the case, here's the upshot: It's fun to work with people from all over.  And it's good to be reminded what a resilient, imaginative, welcoming species we can be.

Buy Tickets

We're back Saturday, October 13 with an all-vegetarian popup (menu above) co-produced with Ed Smith PTO at The Venue, 211 Catawba Street,  

Through generous support from the Gifford Foundation, we're able to sell tickets for just $10 each - so everyone can come.

(We do have to depart from our ‘all you can eat’ precedent. This time around everyone will get a physical ticket at the door that gets hole-punched when you visit a food station, allowing you one serving per country.)

Beer from Griffin Hill Farm Brewery will be a little extra.  There's free cooking classes from Japan, Malaysia & Palestine on offer, too.

Tickets (limited to 500) go on sale here at 10 am, Friday, September 28.  

Lucky us!

My Lucky Tummy is a social enterprise that pays home chefs very well & fosters a fun, chill work environment.
