Please join us on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 7-9pm for An Evening of Sweets & Treats, in celebration of The Food Trust’s 20th Anniversary. We are hosting one in a series of 20 themed parties during the month of February, in support of The Food Trust’s effort to educate our communities and provide access to nutritious, affordable foods.
You are invited to enjoy homemade sweets from area bakers at our interactive cupcake bar, as well as libations courtesy of Yards Brewing Company and Spodee. There also will be a selection of treats, books and baking supplies to be raffled off during the event. The evening will be an opportunity to learn more about the work that The Food Trust is involved in, as well as mingle with fellow food enthusiasts.
If you would like to attend, we ask that you register in advance. The exact location address will be emailed to registered attendees only.
We suggest a cash donation of $15 at the door, with all proceeds to benefit The Food Trust. If you cannot make the event, but still want to donate, click here.
About The Food Trust
The Food Trust, a nonprofit founded in 1992, started out by conducting nutrition education classes for inner-city children at Reading Terminal Market, the century-old farmers' market located in the center of Philadelphia. After the Trust opened its first farmers' market at Tasker Homes, a public housing development in the Grays Ferry neighborhood of Philadelphia, the organization began working with communities to develop lasting and stable sources of affordable foods. The Food Trust strives to make healthy food available to all. Working with neighborhoods, schools, grocers, farmers and policymakers, they've developed a comprehensive approach that combines nutrition education and greater availability of affordable, healthy food.
We would like to thank the following for their generous contributions
