Dining For Justice presents “Pata Negra Pigout for Justice”
On the beautiful Queens Riviera at Anable Basin LIC NY
Benefitting Immigrant Families Together
Sunday September 22 12pm - 3pm
A very special pig roast from Don Rodrigo Duarte, the man responsible for bringing Portuguese Alentejano pigs to the United States. This very special pig is the genetic forebear of the pata negra and when roasted it especially exquisite, in fact Duarte took home the grand prize at Pig Island 2018 for his roast Alentejano Hog. Don Rodrigo has also been dubbed the “King of Hams,” by New Jersey Monthly and will be serving some special charcuterie. Side dishes will be graciously provided by Chefs Consortium and our friends at Betty Bakery will be serving desserts.

Since June 2018, Immigrant Families Together has responded to the family separation crisis caused by the zero tolerance policy and immigration detention by raising funds and posting bond for more than 70 parents, grandparents, and older siblings. But that's just the first step. Once the adult is freed from immigration detention, IFT provides ongoing support to families, ensuring that they have the resources that they need to build a safe, healthy, and stable life while they are pursuing their asylum claims.
