On May 13, 2017 friends and families “gathered” in homes, workplaces, and restaurants to raise awareness and $50,000 in support of Jones Valley Teaching Farm’s Good School Food program in Birmingham City Schools.
We are overwhelmed by the level of support we received at each of the 17 Gather events held on one single night across metro Birmingham. Menus included high-end catered events, family block parties with BBQ, shrimp boils, and a family pasta night at Glen Iris Elementary school!
We couldn’t have done it without the 41 hosts, 18 chefs, and over 216 donors who dedicated their time, energy, creativity, and resources to this amazing night!
Here is a film created for each Gather dinner by our friends at 1504 Pictures:
