1st Annual ‘Feast for Farms & Families’ – Thursday, July 14th

by Shelley Brosius

Scheduled for Thursday, July 14th, MDFMA’s first annual Feast for Farms & Families fundraiser is a united effort between MDFMA and a handful of generous restaurant partners to support the Maryland Market Money program. Each partnering restaurant has pledged to donate a percentage of the day’s sales to help bolster the food budgets of low-income farmers market shoppers.  The list of participating restaurants continues to grow: more information about this event, including a list of participating restaurants, is available here.
