How often does the opportunity come up to have a great meal while supporting a great cause?
On Thursday, Oct. 7, diners across Vermont will have just such an opportunity by participating in the 16th Annual Share the Harvest fundraising event.
In collaboration with the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont, approximately 80 restaurants, food markets, and food cooperatives throughout Vermont will donate a percentage of their food sales to NOFA-Vermont's Farm Share program.
All funds raised will benefit limited-income individuals and families by assisting them in purchasing to 22 weeks of fresh farm produce from local Community Supported Agriculture farms.
