Cocktails, canapes and community. What could be better? Answer: it all benefitting CFM’s Double SNAP, education and outreach efforts. Hosted by Rebecca and Ross Williams of Many Fold Farm and Joe Reynolds and Judith Winfrey of Love is Love Farm, Cocktails for Community is an evening jampacked with a few of our favorite things, and it all happens this Saturday, August 22nd. First, seven of Atlanta’s best bartenders, including Kellie Thorn of Empire State South and Kimball House’s Miles Macquarrie, will be slinging craft cocktails featuring innovative seasonal flavors. But what would a cocktail party be without hors d'oeuvres? That, of course, is where Atlanta chefs like Eat Me Speak Me’s Jarrett Stieber and Allen Suh, formerly of Gato Arigato and Jook #0 come in. Cheese selections and pairings will also be available from Many Fold Farm and Preserving Place.
The best part of the evening, though, is what it’s all for—our community. CFM’s Double SNAP program doubles the value of SNAP dollars at our farmers markets, making healthy food much more accessible to those who need it. Check out the complete listing of participating bartenders below, and we hope to see you at Gaia Gardens this Saturday from 5pm to 8pm. Tickets are available here.
