LUSH Valley is raising money for its food access programs.
The non-profit organization provides a hot meal program that helps feed vulnerable people at no cost.
Fundraisers are being held every Wednesday until July 20 and then again in late August at 40 Knots Winery featuring a locally-inspired menu with the help of the Farmer’s Kitchen food truck.
The events are taking place from 5-8 p.m. with all of the food proceeds and half of the table reservation fees going towards LUSH Valley.
The hot meal program is currently being offered once a week, and the organization hopes to expand the service and raise $25,000 this summer and fall.
“When LUSH lost access to the public kitchen at the Florence Filberg Centre last August, I offered up the Farmer’s Kitchen food truck’s kitchen and my chef skills to keep the hot meal program running,” said LUSH Valley food access manager James McKerricher. “It was cold through the winter, but it was important to keep the program running for those who really needed it.”
