Hey, Chris the apprentice here. I’m writing to invite you to support an awesome project that we’re a part of:
The Urban Greens Fall Fiesta is coming up this Sunday, October 21! It’s a fall-harvest celebration dinner and a fundraiser for the food co-op, and it’s happening Sunday, 5:30 – 8:30pm, at AS220 (115 Empire St. in downtown Providence). Lots of local superstar chefs, brewers, cheesemakers, bakers, fishermen, and farmers (including us at Red Planet) are involved.
Dinner starts at 5:30pm, $25 per person (or $20 for co-op members) for the whole night, or you can just come for music & dancing starting at 9pm, $8 per person. Click here for more information about the dinner, or click here to buy tickets online now and get a free drink ticket!
Chefs from Julian’s, Broadway Bistro, Flan y Ajo, Local 121, Loie Fuller’s, My Chef Lara, and Night will be cooking up a storm, and I can tell you that the menu preview I heard today sounds incredible. There will be a cash bar of craft beer & spirits, a silent auction, and live music from a number of local artists.
What is Urban Greens? It’s a food cooperative on the west side of Providence with a mission to provide simple, direct access to affordable, local, natural products through a full-scale, community-owned grocery store. We’re currently operating a buying club for local and healthy products, and we’re also looking for more founding co-op members! Learn more at our website, or by sending an email to email@example.com.
