The Courier-Post will partner with the Farm & Fisherman Tavern in Cherry Hill and other community organizations to offer a special tasting, farm tour and community conversation about reducing food waste, on Saturday, Sept. 29 at 5:30 p.m. at FireWorks Gallery in South Camden.
With a menu orchestrated by Chef Todd Fuller of Farm & Fisherman, the event will include Scrap App tastings, live music, an art show, and tours of urban farming spaces led by Farmer Jon Compton of the Center for Environmental Transformation (CFET), an urban farming internship program in South Camden.
Also included will be a special beer brewed exclusively for the event by Tonewood Brewing Company, using produce from the CFET orchards.
Advance tickets are $40 or two for $75 in advance; $20 for Camden City residents. At the door, if available, tickets are $45. Proceeds will benefit CFET.
Join in a community conversation about farm-to-fork, reducing food waste, and sustainable cooking and growing, while exploring the FireWorks creative space. Guests will learn innovative, fun ways to reduce their food waste footprint. In addition to the tasting and farm tour, they can enjoy an art exhibit and live music by guitarist David Kelly.
From 6 to 8 p.m., join us for a “Scrap Apps’’ tasting of appetizers created by chefs to illustrate the need for reducing food waste and using more of what we purchase and cook. In addition to Chef Fuller, the event is will feature chefs from The Food Bank of South Jersey, Neighborhood Center and Cathedral Kitchen, with support from Campbell’s Soup and Urban Promise.
