Graze 4 Good
Graze 4 Good is a unique fundraiser that pairs our vibrant local food community with emerging philanthropists eager to make a difference, all in support of our Fourth Generation program. This year, we’re transforming Graze 4 Good into a four-part, at-home culinary event series that supports some of our favorite, local BIPOC-owned restaurants. Proceeds will fund grants for nonprofits that support economic justice.
These curated dining experiences will be delivered to attendees’ doorsteps, each with a unique theme and menu. Each virtual event will also feature exclusive interviews with local community and civic leaders. Be a part of one or all these events:
February 13 at 10 a.m. Start your morning right with coffee and a conversation with entrepreneur and creative powerhouse Houston White, featuring breakfast essentials from The Get Down Coffee Co, La Boulangerie Marguerite, and more!
March 5 at 4:30 p.m. Join U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips, a longtime champion of economic justice for happy hour. Your tastebuds will get a workout with a Wine Palate Trainer and virtual lesson from Scarlett Carrasco Polanco, the Sommelier and Beverage Director from Grand Café & Eastside. There will also be snackable bites from Singing Hills Goat Farm and Morrocan Flavors.
