Annual Pie Fundraiser
Food Roots annual Pie Fundraiser engages our community in supporting our work while enjoying delicious food and sharing stories of our successes, challenges, and future goals.
We hope to resume in-person Pie Night again in 2022. This event has been a virtual event in 2020 and 2021 through our Local Food Marketplace Platform.
Our virtual Pie Week is held in October, stay tuned for updates about our 2022 event, or reach out to us if you are interested in supporting this fundraiser, as a donor, a baker, or logistics volunteer.
Farm to Table Dinner Series
In late 2018, Food Roots launched a Farm to Table Dinner Series in partnership with local food producers and area chefs/restaurants to highlight the bounty of our north coast producers and to provide an intimate space in which to share our accomplishments and our future goals.
These events have been on hold during the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to relaunch these events in 2022/2023. Stay tuned for more information, or reach out to us if you would like to support these events as a donor, producer/chef/restaurant partner, or logistics volunteer.
