The March of Dimes and The Delaware Department of Agriculture have teamed up to present the 5th annual The Farmer and The Chef. The event is a fundraiser for the March of Dimes, with proceeds going directly to the March of Dimes, scheduled for September 20, 2012 at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington.
The premise of the event is simple, pair local farmers with local chefs. While the event is a fundraiser for the March of Dimes, we are also helping to create sustainable relationships between local farmers and chefs, while reinforcing the movement of eating healthy which is something the March of Dimes believes in and promotes to women who are considering pregnancy.
With Agriculture being such an important industry in Delaware, it is vital that we support our local farmers and for us to make sure that people know they can buy fresh, local produce right here – literally in their own back yard.
The event itself will feature local farmers who will provide their product to chefs who will then prepare tasting samples to all event attendees using this product.
Be sure to visit the Farmer and Chef sections of the site on a regular basis to see who will be part of the event this year!
The March of Dimes mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality and we are focused on advancing research on maternal and health issues, helping moms have healthy pregnancies and supporting families. We help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. And if something goes wrong, we offer information and comfort to families. We research the problems that threaten our babies and work on preventing them.
