Thursday, Sept. 20, was a beautiful night on the farm at the Agricultural Village at Awbury Arboretum in Germantown — perfect for Food Moxie’s gala annual Seed to Supper farm-to table dinner. Staff, board, friends, volunteers and other supporters sat down to a delicious family-style meal catered by Weavers Way, featuring farm-fresh produce paired with wine from sponsor Moore Brothers Wine Co.
Besides celebrating the hard work of Food Moxie, Seed to Supper honored — and gifted with handsome commemorative watering cans — leaders in Philadelphia’s broader urban agriculture landscape.
- Longtime Food Moxie fan U.S. Rep. Dwight Evans took time out of his busy schedule to break bread (provided by Philly Bread Co.) with us.
- Philadelphia’s Food Policy Advisory Council accepted an award for its work to support food-justice advocates and amplify food justice issues across the city.
- And a real s-hero to Food Moxie, Lisa Mosca, was recognized for her volunteer role as Farm Adviser for Food Moxie in our 2017-18 season and beyond.
The dinner was an opportunity for some of Food Moxie’s supporters and partners to do what we love best — share a meal of delicious and healthy food and talk about our work. The menu featured eggplant, collard greens and herbs lovingly grown, harvested and prepared by Food Moxie staff and program participants during our 2018 growing and learning season.
A wonderful time was had by all down on the farm, and necessary funds were raised to help continue the work of educating and inspiring people to grow, prepare and eat healthy food.
