Slow Food First Coast hosts benefit

Historic City News has been asked to invite our readers to a fund raising dinner on March 5, 2009 starting at 6:00 p.m. at Johnny’s Kitchen in Hastings.

One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit the Harvest of Hope Foundation, a non-profit organization that works assist migrant farm workers with emergency aid.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling Johnny Barnes at 904-692-1800. The menu will consist of St. Johns County-based ingredients.

Slow Food First Coast is a non-profit organization that promotes local food production, the preservation of our community’s culinary and cultural heritage, and public education and discourse on food systems that support equity, sustainability, and quality.
