Wednesday August 27 Red Avocado Fundraiser for LFC!

On Wednesday evening, be sure to head to the Red Avocado, 521 E. Washington St., in Iowa City. Thanks to Dave Burt and the Red Avocado for hosting a fundraiser for Local Foods Connection this Wednesday August 27 from 5:30 to 8:30 with 50% of the profits going to our organization!

You can learn a lot about this awesome vegan, all-organic restaurant on their website. They talk about their mission and philosophy, give a list of the local farms from which they purchase food, and provide their menus.

Look at the description of their hot entree “College Green Sunset”!

“Layered portabello mushroom-walnut pate, tempeh sausage, tofu ricotta, and caramelized onions wrapped in a flaky filo pastry purse on spinach polenta with horseradish-root vegetable-sweet corn relish, roasted red pepper sauce and a fine drizzle of sweet balsamic reduction.”

YUM! So if you’ve never been to Red Avocado, Wednesday night is a great time to try it, and, if you love Red Avocado already, Wednesday night is the perfect time for your next visit! Support Red Avocado, the local food system, and Local Foods Connection in one fell swoop. As LFC’s awesome intern Emma Duer put it last night, the Wednesday evening fundraiser is a win-win: “50% of the profits go to LFC, and 100% of the food goes in your tummy!”

Happy day,
