New restaurants to be showcased

Community Plates, a direct-transfer food rescue organization, is preparing for its signature fundraising event, “Food for All” on Thursday, Oct. 2.

The event, held at the Darien Community Association, highlights the organization’s goals for the coming year and celebrates its accomplishments; and there is much to celebrate.

“Community Plates is already responsible for picking up and delivering almost four million meals at a value of over $6 million to food insecure people in Fairfield County. We’re focused on meeting the need of 110,000 people right here who struggle to know where their next meal is coming from,” co-founder and executive director Kevin Mullins said. “The Food for All 2014 fundraiser is our kick-off for our next food rescue season. It’s a lot of fun, the food is amazing, and we do a lot of good in the process.”

Food for All features the area’s newest restaurants showcasing their signature dishes, including Greenwich’s Back40 Kitchen. An added highlight this year is a series of craft cocktail bars presented by Fairfield County’s most innovative bartenders. The celebratory evening begins with a VIP cocktail reception from 6 to 7 p.m. featuring Marcia Seldon Catering, followed by the main event running from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. which will include featured restaurants, libations, music, dancing and more.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about Community Plates and their newly developed GoRescue application, the organization’s interactive food rescue scheduling tool which connects food-service organizations that gather and donate food that would otherwise be wasted. Tickets for the VIP reception cost $100, while the main event tickets are available for $50. Tickets can be purchased at Communityplates.org/FFA14.
