Kick off Sacramento’s Farm to Fork Week 2014 with a communal commitment to end hunger in our region. Affectionately known as “Fork It!” this sit-down dinner for 150 features appetizers and a dinner menu from the best local farms and restaurants.

Your ticket buys two meals – one for you and one for a neighbor that might often experience hunger. We’ll break bread together, share stories, and understand better the challenges facing over one quarter million of our neighbors who are food insecure, including ongoing efforts to cut food stamps even further.

Farm To EVERY Fork is a coalition of farmers, urban gardeners, food banks, Slow Food Sacramento, and other food justice activists, including Loaves and Fishes and the Sacramento Homeless Organizing Committee/Homeward Street Journal. Together we advocate and act for good, clean, and fair food for all.

Tickets
(which will pay for two meals) are $150.00 per person.

Sponsorships (with recognition in dinner program) include:
One Harvest Hero sponsorship available at $5000 – 4 guests and sponsorship recognition, logo display

Three Pantry Patron sponsorships available at $1000 – 2 guests and sponsorship recognition, logo display

Six Food Access Friend sponsorships available at $500 – 1 guest, sponsorship recognition, logo display

Unlimited Seedling Supporter number of sponsorships available at $250.00 – sponsorship recognition

All proceeds of this event benefit local organizations serving the low income and homeless community, including the Sacramento Homeless Organizing Committee/Homeward Street Journal, the Sacramento Food Bank, River City Food Bank, and the Fund for Urban Gardens, featuring the Oak Park Garden for Peace and Homeward Gardens.
