Food For Thought: Veggie Voucher Fundraiser

Submitted by The Echo Park Farmers’ Market:

We hope you will join us for a very special Seasonal Supper Fundraiser at The Green Beacon Foundation to benefit our Veggie Voucher Program! The Veggie Voucher Program allows low-income shoppers to buy more fresh produce directly from local farmers at the market by providing bonus coupons to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables to customers shopping with CalFresh/EBT (formerly known as food stamps). 100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly to a consumer in need of money to afford a healthy diet AND to a local California farmer.

The Seasonal Supper will feature a special four course meal created by renowned guest chef Gloria Felix of Reservior Restaurant in Silverlake with wine pairings provided by City Sip LA. Gloria has worked behind the stoves of many top restaurants in LA including AOC, Grace and Jar. She was also the on-camera Sous Chef to Gordon Ramsay on the hit reality show Hell’s Kitchen. All of the produce and most of the ingredients will be sourced FRESH from SEE-LA’s Farmers’ Markets.
