Rice Balls (Onigiri) for Japan

A group of Japanese mothers living in Toronto will do their mouth-watering best on Wednesday March 30 to help the Japan earthquake/tsunami relief effort.

The women, wearing traditional kimonos and white aprons symbolizing motherhood, will offer delicious, authentic home-style rice balls, known as onigiri, to the public at Centre for International Experience Cumberland House. A couple of mothers are from the Tsunami-stricken areas.

Pay what you can. All proceeds will go to the JapaneCanadian Red Cross se Earthquake and
Tsunami Relief Fund.

The mothers , who were all born and raised in Japan and know a thing or two about Japanese cuisine, were inspired by two Japanese exchange students at the University of Toronto, who organized 40 volunteers to make and sell onigiri at Innis College earlier this month.

That event raised $6,700 for the Red Cross relief fund.

The Japanese mothers together with students aim to do better: Come, eat, and help.

Place: Centre for International Experience Cumberland House
33 St. George Street, Toronto, Ontario
Time: Start at 11:00 a.m. until rice balls are sold out on Wednesday, March 30, 2011
