We, as a community, have not experienced a year like 2020. Business is not as usual and many have had to close while others have come up with creative ways to survive, thrive and support others. Non-profits working in the field of food security have supported individuals and families in record numbers over the past 6 months.
Three (3) restaurant partners have agreed to open up their doors creatively for an event not seen before in Albuquerque on Sunday, October 4, 2020. Working with incredible chefs and their corresponding restaurants, a volunteer team is putting together a community-wide event to support small business and local non-profit organizations working in the space of food security. Sponsors cover the costs of the event so all proceeds from ticket sales can go directly to our non-profit partners. Here’s the lineup:
Chef Dominic Valenzuela, Tako Ten is partnering with St. Felix Pantry
Chef Tristin Rogers, Hollow Spirits is partnering with The Storehouse
Chef Josh Kennon, Fork and Fig/Jealous Fork & Matt Simmonds, Broken Trail Distillery are partnering with Meals on Wheels Albuquerque
United Way of Central NM will provide fiscal and administrative support while their program Mission: Families will be a beneficiary
The challenge is to see whom can sell the most elevated picnic meals either through pick up or reserved seats at the restaurant. There are three event times:
11:00am to 1:00pm
3:00pm to 5:00pm
6:00pm to 8:00pm
Reserved seating at the restaurants will be an elevated dining experience with fun perks and a community based, small business raffle.
Tickets range from $35.00 to $200.
