One person can make a difference!
Through the efforts of community volunteers, Fairfield County-Community Plates rescues surplus food and distributes it directly to local receiving agencies that support food-insecure individuals and families.
Fundraiser at Stepping Stones Museum: Tuesday, Oct. 9th, 6:30pm
On October 9, Community Plates is hosting its annual Fall Ball fundraiser at Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk.
Tickets are $40 and are available to public. Every $1 donated enables three pounds of food – the equivalent of 2.5 healthy meals – to be rescued, on average.
The 2012 Fall Ball Auction will include four unique dining experiences involving chefs from Match Restaurant, Elm Restaurant, Cinch Gourmet Meal Market and Barcelona Wine Bar & Restaurant.
This is our major fundraiser of the year. Dress smart casual.
Volunteer Food Runners Needed
Community Plates is continuing to grow in Connecticut and other locations across the country. To make this happen, the organization is expanding its team of volunteer food runners. These individuals pick up food from donor locations, such as the Fairway in Stamford and Match Restaurant in SoNo, and deliver bins to receiving agencies, including Person-to-Person in Darien, Wilton Interfaith Food Pantry, and Bridgeport Rescue Mission, among others.
Food Runners schedule regular or ad hock food runs based upon their availability. Click here to learn about volunteering.
