Please join us on Wednesday, October 16th for our second annual “Big Fuss About Food” Fest and Fundraiser, held from 5:30-8:00 PM in our new Allen Market Place.
At the “Big Fuss,” you can tour the facility, meet the people involved in its creation, and learn about the existing and developing programs of the Allen Neighborhood Center. Meet and talk with staff and volunteers of the Allen Street Farmers Market, the Hunter Park GardenHouse, and the Health and Housing Outreach Team. Tour the new commercial Kitchen designed to provide affordable rental space for food entrepreneurs, and to enable ANC to offer lots of fun and educational programs about every aspect of cooking. Learn about the Exchange, which is already bringing more local food to our tables by connecting farmers and food producers with schools, chefs, grocery stores and restaurants.
Friendly conversation, live music, and delicious refreshments are all on the “Big Fuss” menu. We will have a formal presentation at 7:00 PM to honor our community of supporters and friends, so please be sure to stick around!
Contributions of any size are welcome (and no size is too small.) donate here: http://allenneighborhoodcenter.org/. And remember that we value offers of volunteer time just as much! With continued support from friends old and new, we will continue our mission to promote neighborhood revitalization and to spark food and health-related initiatives to enrich life on the Eastside and beyond. Thank you!
