If you like to eat and like to support awesome local causes, Farm to Fork is the event for you. On September 24, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., Farm to Fork will present an amazing evening of locally sourced food and wine to benefit GRuB-a food-growing and educational nonprofit based in Olympia-at Swing Wine Bar in Olympia.
Farm to Fork is headed up by the Human Touch Chef's Group-a group of Northwest chefs who are committed to raising awareness of sustainable food resources, family, and real food. The chefs will prepare a menu using ingredients grown and raised locally, which will be complemented by wines from Swing.
"We're doing this as a charity event for the Grub farm," says Chef Thomas Humbock from Swing Wine Bar, one of the ten chefs. "They teach people within the community how to approach food how it used to be, bringing people back to the dinner table. We'll be starting our day off at the GRuB farm, getting our bounty for the day, and then we'll be coming here."
Along with dinner, there will also be more than $1500 in door prizes given out throughout the evening.
Tickets to Farm to Fork are $100 and more than 50% of the proceeds will go to GRuB. To reserve your tickets, call 360-357-9464.
