SAVE THE DATE!     SAVE THE DATE!     SAVE THE DATE!     

The first live event for the People Feeding People Outreach is planned and is sure to be an event you’ll want to attend (and we really want you there).

October 17, 2013  

Location: The Garden Room 215 West Dickson St., Fayetteville, AR  72701

Menu: Indian Feast featuring local farm fresh foods prepared by Chef Jasson Henderson and Greenhouse Grille Chef Jerrmy Gawthrop

Live Music featuring: 3 Penny Acre, Cutty Rye and Don’t Stop Please

In addition to good food and music we will have raffle items and a silent auction.

All proceeds will benefit the India project to continue our support for economic develop of Tibetan Organic Farmers while we address food insecurity and feed hungry people. If interested visit the EVENTS page (link on left side menu).

SEE the Early bird special now until September 1st. Sign up now and get your tickets for $20.00 per person.  Just fill out the Comment Form on the Events Page and let us know you are interested (names for the guest list) and donate through paypal $20 for each person who plans to attend. Early ticket sales will help us tremendously with planning as you all know we are grassroots and run on a very very tight budget.

Help us to help others:

July PFP  Distribution was successfully made on July 31st to the sponsored families as we again delivered lentils, a more nutritious protein enriched option. Currently the rains have been heavy during monsoon season so farmers are not able to work the fields.

Our current activities have been to express interest in a USAID grant which we will hear the end of August if our project is shortlisted and invited to apply for the grant. Our plan is to support Tibetan Organic Farmers with hoop house/high tunnel production in order to advance their production. As well, my part time employment with the Farmers Market is providing me the opportunity to advance my network with movers and shakers in the local food network. I have been collecting information on programs that we can share with the Tibetan farming community to empower them to adopt farm to table programs, and farm to school programs. All this in an effort to help their community to become more self reliant and sustaining. The program also has a component to help Indian families to develop small sack gardens to help develop their ability to be more self reliant with more nutritious options.

We are happy to have awesome sponsors for our benefit dinner which will help to establish the first Hoop House/High Tunnel and sack gardens which is referred to as Phase II. Thanks to the following sponsors and we hope to add more:

The Garden Room, Fayetteville Farmers Market, The Fayetteville Roots Fest, Greenhouse Grille and NWA Local Harvest.

Your compassion and generosity is always appreciated. As we prepare for the Benefit Dinner we are in need of support in many ways:

Volunteers, Promotion (sharing our pages), food donations, pre sale tickets, and items for auction/raffle.

Please keep in touch and don’t forget the early bird tickets are available NOW until Sept 1st.

Kind regards,
