A special thank you to Graham Lewis Photography for capturing the event!
On the night of October 1st, at the launch of National Farm to School Month, more than 75 guests came together to celebrate our community's vibrant food system –– all to benefit Rogue Valley Farm to School's work of bringing local fruits and vegetables fresh from farms to school cafeterias.
The Second Annual Harvest Dinner on Oak Street was made possible by the incredible staff of Standing Stone Brewing Company. The generosity of guests and our sponsors helped Rogue Valley Farm to School raise more than $19,000 in cash and in-kind gifts, matched with an additional $15,000 from a private foundation, for a total of more than $34,000 to support farm to school education, connecting local schools with local farmers and supporting a healthier community.
By reaching our goal for the fundraiser, we are able to hire a dedicated staff member who will be working closely with local producers and schools to create systems so that schools can readily incorporate healthy, locally grown and processed food into their school meal menus.
Help us show our gratitude by supporting these amazing local businesses!
