Get out and visit local eateries tomorrow Thursday, October 5, 2012!
Participating local restaurants will be donating 5% of their proceeds to Northeast Organic Farming Association program, helping low-income Vermonters purchase and enjoy local, delicious food.
The annual Share the Harvest fundraiser benefits NOFA-Vermont’s Farm Share Program which is a great way that limited-income Vermonters can afford to purchase CSA (community supported agriculture) shares of fresh produce from their local farmers. Donations to the Farm Share Program go into a fund which helps subsidize CSA shares to needy Vermonters. NOFA Vermont believes that all Vermonters should be able to eat local organic food, regardless of their income level, while also making sure farmers get a good wage for their hard work.
Participating local businesses include: American Flatbread, Fire & Ice, Green Peppers Restaurant, Middlebury Co-Op, Otter Creek Bakery, Stone Leaf Teahouse, and The Waybury Inn.
