Polynesian Eats with No Ke Aloha

Comrade Brewing Company filled up with guests enjoying a cold beer alongside a Polynesian dinner on Aug. 27.

The Polynesian Eats event catered by the No Ke Aloha food truck featured dishes such as: kalua pork, Hawaiian BBQ, hurrican fries, poke and macaroni salad. For many, this was their first experience eating Hawaiian food as their are limited options in Denver.

The event also presented a discussion about the effects of climate change both in the Pacific Islands and in Colorado and what can be done about it.

Speaker Allyson Masunaga Goto, a graduate of Brown University with a degree in Environmental Studies and focus on Sustainability in Development, shared resources and tips on what individuals can do to slow down the impacts of climate change and live more sustainably.

Goto is a fourth-generation Japanese American. Fueled by her passion for sustainability, environmental justice, and human rights, she works with Denver’s Department of Health and Environment to address the lack of healthy and affordable foods in low-income communities.
