Gorge Grown Food Network will be hosting its second annual farm-to-table Harvest Dinner on Sept. 27 at Kiyokawa Family Orchards. Chef Ben Stenn of Celilo Restaurant & Bar will be preparing a four-course seasonal meal featuring local produce and meat with wines from Cor Cellars paired with each dish. Cocktail hour begins at 4 p.m. with beer from pFriem Family Brewers. Enjoy live music from the June Bug Boys, and the harvest moon and lunar eclipse while supporting your local food system on this historic family farm in Parkdale with a full view of Mt. Hood.
All proceeds will go to Gorge Grown Food Network, a local organization working to build a resilient and inclusive local food system to improve the health and well-being of all. Gorge Grown is offering a variety of sponsorship opportunities with various benefits for local businesses and interested individuals.
This year Gorge Grown Food Network sponsored workshops for food producers, supported all 10 Gorge farmers’ markets with technical assistance, and increased fresh food access with programs with the food stamp match, Veggie Prescriptions and the Mobile Farmers’ Market. Gorge Grown depends on support from the community to sustain and grown their programming.
Tickets are available for $85 and are available at www.gorgegrown.com. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. Gorge Grown thanks Riverhood Rentals, Kiyokawa Family Orchards, Celilo Restaurant, The June Bug Boys, Cor Cellars, pFriem Family Brewing, and Flower to Flour Farm for their generous donations to the Harvest Dinner.
