SOUTH SHORE — A local nonprofit is inviting low-income women of color to dinner at vegan restaurant Majani.

Free Root Operation will host a gourmet dinner for participants of its program, which provides women on the South and West sides with free groceries. The effort is part of Chicago Restaurant Week, a 17-day celebration where diners can get deals at participating restaurants in the city and suburbs.

In partnership with South Shore-based Majani Restaurant, 7167 S. Exchange Ave., Free Root Operation’s guests will be served a three-course vegan dinner 5:30-7:30 p.m Sunday, according to a news release.

Carnesha Jones, a licensed social worker and the founder of Sister Afya Community Wellness, will moderate a conversation on self-care, nourishment and transformation for Black women and other women of color during the event.
