Community Food Initiatives to Host Indian Feast Fundraiser

ATHENS, OH - Community Food Initiatives (CFI), a local non-profit known for expanding access to fresh and nutritious foods for all people in our region, is gearing up for its annual Harvest Dinner on Saturday, October 13th at 5:30pm. The dinner will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Athens. This year’s event, organized by CFI’s board of directors, will feature an Indian vegetarian meal using local ingredients, prepared by board member Barbara Fisher, a local food blogger and chef.

Dinner will be accompanied by piano music performed by Lynn Sullivan, who has served as musical director for a number of local performances and also plays in jazz groups. Guests will also see a preview from "Hand to Mouth," a locally produced feature length film by Daniel Trout and Barbara Fisher, about the food producing community in and around Athens.

Thanks to the generosity of the Nelsonville Quilt Company, there will be a raffle drawing for an Appalachian quilt, donated by Susan Holmes. The quilt is a pieced, original design by Cathy Janes and quilted in a vines and leaves pattern by Susan. The retail value is $500. Raffle tickets can be purchased during the dinner or by contacting CFI. You do not need to be present to win.

Board President Tom Redfern notes, “CFI’s community food programs have provided literally tons of fresh food for people who often have no other way of accessing healthy local foods. We hope that people will join us in celebrating and supporting this vital community asset.”

For more event details and to purchase dinner tickets, visit Tickets may also be reserved by sending a check by October 10 to CFI at 94 Columbus Road, Athens, Ohio 45701. Dinner tickets are $20 per person and raffle tickets are $5.
