Back for the fourth time, Eclectik Domestic brings upscale farm-to-table fare to the greenhouse at Peace Tree Farm to benefit Rolling Harvest Food Rescue on Friday, November 30, 2018 at 7pm. At one long, elegant table surrounded by growing plants, community members and new friends will gather to enjoy a four-course meal celebrating local producers and change makers.
Based in Bucks County, PA and benefiting the Greater Philadelphia region, Rolling Harvest Food Rescue aims to increase access to donated fresh produce and other healthy foods to area hunger-relief sites that serve at-risk, food-insecure populations by providing local farmers and food producers with free, effective delivery and distribution of their surplus. These goods are distributed through Rolling Harvest’s network of food pantries, domestic violence shelters, low-income senior centers, children and family homeless shelters, and at risk low-income adults with health challenges.
Peace Tree Farm believes strongly in Rolling Harvest’s mission along with their commitment to supporting local farmers and producers through contract work and donations. Peace Tree donates to the cause each spring and fall with certified organic vegetable and herb starts. The plants are picked up by Rolling Harvest volunteers and then distributed through their network. “Each of us needs to do what we can to give back. It’s about working together to bring to light the needs of your community,” says Candy Traven, CFO of Peace Tree Farm. In these difficult times and uncertain climate, it’s more important than ever to support your community and local farmers.
Tickets to this fundraiser include appetizers, libations, a four-course sit-down dinner highlighting local foods from Peace Tree Farm, Bobolink Dairy + Bakehouse, Carversville Farm Foundation, Plowshares Farm, North Mountain Pastures, Blooming Glen Farm, Solebury Orchards, Ploughman Cider, Galen Glen Winery & Alba Vineyards, and tours of the greenhouses of Peace Tree Farm. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Rolling Harvest Food Rescue.
Donation-based tickets are available for folks who make less than <$30,000/a year, industry, POC, trans, emergency responders, firefighters and Friends & Family. Tickets can be purchased at www.eclectikdomestic.com and accessed via Peace Tree Farm facebook events.
