Posana strengthens our commitment to Asheville’s Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Program. For the tenth year, we will host our annual benefit to support the ASAP’s Growing Minds Program on Thursday, May 17th.
Posana will again be giving 100 percent of the proceeds from the special one night only menu to the ASAP to support the Growing Minds Program. Throughout the evening, guests have the option of ordering off the special 100 percent local menu, alongside Posana’s regular menu. By ordering from the featured menu, diners will be able to support the ASAP with one hundred percent of the proceeds from each menu item going to the Growing Minds Program.
The ‘Growing Minds’ menu will feature ingredients from area farms and purveyors and will highlight ingredients that are at their peak in Western North Carolina this May, such as beets, eggs, local cheeses and local greens. Many of Posana’s regular purveyors are donating ingredients to show their support of the cause, and some will be on hand that evening to greet customers and talk about their farms.
According to Posana Co-owner and Executive Chef Peter Pollay, “I am incredibly passionate about the work that the ASAP is doing to educate and influence the health and the future of children in our mountain region of North Carolina. If we want to make lasting change in the health of this country, we must start with children.”
Peter adds, “Our goal is to increase our donation again this year. Every dollar matters for these children, and we hope that by doing this, we are also heightening awareness for the amazing contribution that ASAP is making to the community.”
ASAP’s Growing Minds Program enriches the education of younger generations by connecting students with local farms. Developing a strong relationship with local food and teaching kids the benefit of supporting local growers and producers will help maintain a sustainable, healthy community.
