African Harvest: A celebration of food and farmers
Thursday, 1 May 2014 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
Calling all foodies and philanthropists!
African Harvest is a benefit event that will showcase the culinary artistry of Chef Jeff Crump (acclaimed author of Earth to Table and Corporate Chef at the Ancaster Mill) and Andrée Riffou (of C’est Bon Cooking), who will combine secret ingredients into small plates with African flair.
Guests will enjoy live cooking demonstrations, delicious food, a variety of local wine and beer, and a silent and live auction, with all proceeds from the evening going to support the life-changing work of Farm Radio International.
In 2012, Farm Radio International received the Rockefeller Foundation’s Innovation Challenge Award in recognition of its innovative use of radio to improve lives, and its work has recently been featured by CNN, The New York Times and The Toronto Star.
Please join us for a fun-filled, feel-good evening that will help serve small-scale farmers across Africa.
