Our 2012 Growing Minds Benefit—Another Great Success!

Since opening our doors in 2009, we have celebrated our anniversary each May by having a special fundraiser for ASAP’s Growing Minds Farm to School program, and this year was no different! We were honored to present a very special Appalachian Grown menu from which local food lovers were able order.

The best part: 100% of the proceeds from that menu went directly to Growing Minds to support connecting farms and schools to give children positive experiences with local food. It benefits us all to have a strong relationship with local food, and teaching our kids the benefit of supporting local growers and producers is so important! Our passion for food and building healthy communities is one reason why we have made the Growing Minds benefit our yearly anniversary event: We all grow from this phenomenal group.

We want to thank our fabulous local food providers for helping us to continue supporting two causes that are near and dear to our hearts: great education for our kids, and phenomenal local food and farms! Please support this year’s local providers any chance you get:

Brasstown Beef
Fork Mountain Farms
East Fork Farms
Three Graces Dairy
Sunburst Trout Farms
Randall Cove Farms
Ashley Farms
Booneville Hill

 

And don’t forget our local wineries and brewers!: Biltmore Estate, Green Man Brewing

A huge Thank You! to everyone that helped make this year another wonderful experience. We hope you will join us again next May for another Growing Minds event!
