Food Community theology

Pancakes, Pancakes, Pancakes.

It’s just about that time of year again. Tuesday, February 25th, is Shrove Tuesday, otherwise known as Pancake Day. As I have done in the past with my Fall Suppers posts, I am creating a list of the places serving pancakes in the upcoming couple of weeks or so.

Waffles will work just as well as pancakes.

One difference between this and the fall suppers, is that this is open to community groups inside and outside of Winnipeg. So, if you are having a pancake supper, please feel free to get in contact with me. My email is macbubs13 at gmail dot com.
On a related note, if as a parish you hold fish fries during Lent, pass that on to me as well, and I will make a separate list of those.

Also, the pancake supper doesn’t have to be a church one. Any community group that is hosting a supper is more than welcome to add their name to the list. There is no charge for being included.

Pancake Day, also called Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras (which is French for “Fat Tuesday”), is the last day of feasting before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. It is called so due to the tradition of eating pancakes on the day. This tradition comes from a time where any remaining rich foods were eaten on the day before Lent to use them up, and fasting begins.
