From our friends at Shalom Farms:
Shalom Farms, an initiative of United Methodist Urban Ministries of Richmond, is having a benefit dinner Monday, October 24 at 7:00pm. We are once again proud to partner with Todd Johnson Executive Chef and Co-Owner of Mezzanine Restaurant (Richmond Restaurant of the Year in 2009). Thanks to Todd’s generosity and the support of local farms almost 100% of the cost of your ticket will go straight to Shalom Farms. Your support will allow us to continue to provide thousands of lbs of our produce as well as educational resources and supports to the children and families in Richmond who need it most.This four-course dinner is a great way to support Shalom Farms and have an incredible local and sustainable meal. All of the meat and produce will be from Shalom Farms, Victory Farms, Tuckahoe, Rock Castle Farm, and Manakintowne Specialty Growers. The dinner will take place in the main gallery upstairs at Gallery5. In the downstairs gallery you can view our “The Art of Growing Communities” installation featuring art for sale as a fundraiser. If you can’t make the dinner but are interested in supporting the project consider gifting the cost of tickets so that we can invite our partners and friends from the one of the underserved communities we work in.
