ROOTS 2018

WHAT: Cork is hosting a fundraiser, with the goal of 100% of the proceeds going to the Vermont Foodbank’s new “Vermonters Feeding Vermonters” program.

WHEN: Saturday, June 9 from 5-9pm

WHERE: The Estate at Strawberry Hill, 300 Meadow Lane, Stowe

WHY: Hunger is an issue that hits closer to home than most of us think. It’s present in our community and is a significant issue in neighboring communities. Our goal is to bring more awareness to this problem. No fundraising efforts toward this issue currently exist in Stowe.

DETAILS: ROOTS will be a walk around tasting event / cocktail party featuring natural wines from Cork, beer & cider from breweries around Stowe, and heavy hors d’oeuvres from 20-30 of the best restaurants and food producers in Vermont. Dave Wilkens and Molly Pindell have generously donated their fabulous Strawberry Hill Estate as the location of the event. We are committed to 100% of the proceeds from the event going directly to the Vermont Foodbank. We are specifically donating the proceeds to a new program called Vermonters Feeding Vermonters. In this pilot year, the goal is to increase the amount and quality of fresh, healthy food distributed to those in need by purchasing high quality fruits and vegetables directly from Vermont growers to distribute to Vermonters facing hunger. The goal of this program is to purchase approximately 150,000 pounds of Vermont grown produce in 2018.
