Pierogi Pierogi Fundraiser 2019

Donate to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and get free Polish dumplings.

We all love a good Polish dumpling, but who knew the humble pierogi actually had a patron saint? His name is Saint Hyacinth and he even has a day of feasting dedicated to him. And to celebrate, your mates at Pierogi Pierogi are hosting a good ol' dumpling fundraiser.

As it turns out, Saint Hyacinth was famed for feeding homemade pierogi to Krakow's poor, needy and destitute, and these locals are marking the occasion by doing something similar.

At the Pierogi Pierogi stall at Queen Victoria Night Market on Wednesday, August 14 the team is giving out free plates of Polish dumpling to the first 100 people that donate to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) tins, which will be located out the front of the stall. The fundraiser is a nod to the Poles who were welcomed into Australia when they fled the communist regime in the 40s and 80s.

If you miss out on free dumplings, you'll still be about to eat some and donate (and feel warm and fuzzy for two reasons). On the menu there'll be ruskie dumps (filled with potato and white cheese), kapusta version (with 'shrooms and sauerkraut) and mieso ones (with beer and vegetable).

The stall will be open from 5–10pm but you better get in early if you want to snag a free (with donation) plate of pierogi.
