Wine Pairing Farm-to-Table Dinner Fundraiser 2015

On May 16, 2015, HSFM hosted a farm-to-table wine-pairing dinner and silent auction at Huckleberry Fine Art Gallery in Rockville, Maryland. We were glad to have County Council President and HSFM Advisory Board Member George Leventhal and Board of Education member Jill Ortman-Fouse in attendance. It was a delightful evening with the beautiful background jazz music of Joe Yanovitch (Karen's husband) on guitar and Massimo Quartararo on saxophone.

"Big agribusiness has given us lots of calories with minimal nutritional value. This is evident in our children's expanding waistlines. Schools are places of education, and teaching our children to eat these high calorie, low nutrient foods is doing a disservice to these youngsters."
