Growing Community - A Farm to Fork Dinner

The good folks from Shalom Farms are hosting a benefit dinner tomorrow night at Gallery 5. You may ask, what is Shalom Farms all about:

Begun in the fall of 2008, Shalom Farms is a nonprofit community farm project with the overarching goal of increasing food security in the Richmond region, particularly in low-income urban neighborhoods. A collaboration with many diverse and expert partners, the project is attaining its goal by: 1) providing fresh and healthy produce to underserved communities; 2) providing educational training to children and adults on growing food, nutrition, and food-based entrepreneurship; and 3) linking community groups to a wide range of food security resources and partners.

They are doing important work in Richmond, and I encourage you to come to the dinner 
and get involved in their cause.

Shalom Farms, Mezzanine Restaurant and Gallery5 Present:
