Lunch will be catered by Foodhini, a DC start-up offering dishes by immigrant and refugee chefs. Foodhini was founded on the idea that food can be used to create new opportunities for these communities, and also satisfy the appetites of hungry foodies in search of authentic multicultural meals.
The closing wine reception will feature donated biodynamic and organic wines from California. Sponsoring wineries include:
Bonterra Organic Vineyards celebrated 30 years of organic farming in 2017. This special year began with Bonterra receiving the prestigious “American Winery of the Year” award from Wine Enthusiast magazine. As pioneers in organic viticulture, Bonterra strives to farm in the best way possible for the land, which has resulted in award-winning wines harvest after harvest.
“Zero Waste” Event
When we waste food, we waste the energy, water, and wildlife habitat sacrificed to produce it. During this event, we’re striving to prevent food waste by limiting overproduction; we’re finding community partners that can support food recovery; and we’re striving to divert inedible food waste away from landfill (i.e. composting). We are also using biodegradable paper products and utensils, all in an effort to make this event as close to ‘zero waste’ as possible. To support this initiative, we are proudly partnering with the World Wildlife Fund’s Foodwaste US program.
