Local Restaurants for Local Kids Fundraiser – March 3rd, 2011

By Andrea Northup March 2, 2011

On Thursday March, 3rd, 2011, portions of proceeds from some of the best farm-to-table restaurants in Washington, D.C. will go to the D.C. Farm to School Network!  Enjoy a night out and support two good causes – locally-owned restaurants that source from farms nearby, AND the D.C. Farm to School Network, which connects D.C. schools with healthy, local foods for their school meals.

Here’s how it works…

Choose from the many great local restaurants that graciously agreed to donate a percentage of proceeds from sales for the event.  Participating restaurants include Bar Pilar, Eatonville, Equinox, Poste Moderne Brasserie, Cafe St. Ex and Zest Bistro.  Check out this MAP for the full list, where you can see the percentage of proceeds each restaurant will donate.  Check back often (more restaurants are coming on board every day!)  Make reservations if the restaurant is busy, and then enjoy your dinner and drinks on March 3rd knowing a portion of your check will go to D.C. Farm to School Network!

Please spread the word!

The D.C. Farm to School Network is a coalition of diverse stakeholders working to incorporate more healthy, local foods and food education into Washington, DC schools.  We care deeply about the health and well being of the District of Columbia’s kids, our local environment and our local food economy.  We educate and share information about farm to school programs; provide direct assistance to food service providers interested to serve healthy, local foods; facilitate direct connections between farm to school stakeholders, provide trainings, tools, resources, and updates; and advocate for local and federal policies that support farm to school programs.  For more information, visit www.dcfarmtoschool.org.
