Slow Food Sacramento’s 4th Annual Urban Ag Fest
Food events are great and even better when they benefit a good cause. This just happens to be the case with the upcoming 4th Annual Urban Ag Fest put on by Slow Food Sacramento, this Saturday, June 9 at Rosemont High School.
The Urban Ag Fest is a fundraiser to bring edible schoolyard projects and nutritional education to schools throughout the Sacramento region. The event will specifically benefit O.W. Erlewine Elementary School’s ecology and garden center and Rosemont High School’s Green Academy.
The night will kick off with the Showcase Reception at 4 p.m., with local schools sharing their schoolyard garden projects and preparing fresh and nutritious salad samples from their crops.
Following the reception is the dinner, which will feature a superb menu created by Matt and Yvette Woolston of the Supper Club and starts at 6 p.m. Each dish is prepared slow-food style and will include many lunchroom classics, with a gourmet twist. The burgers come in the form of sliders made with beef from a local ranch, the mac and cheese is organic and gluten free and the fish sticks are grilled peppercorn-crusted sterling sturgeon. Check out the entire six-course menu here.
Spend an evening enjoying delicious food and helping out an educational and healthy program. The reception is $20 and the reception with the slow-food style meal is $75. Click here to purchase your tickets (they’re going fast!) and even make a donation if you wish.
