Eat Well, Do Good, Have Fun

What could be better than enjoying a meal of fresh, organic produce prepared by one of Boston's best chefs? I'll tell you: knowing that the proceeds from that meal go toward Serving Ourselves Farm, where organic produce is grown for and by Boston's homeless. The farm, which provides a comprehensive job training program as well as fresh, nutritious produce for the Long Island Shelter, has a long-standing partnership with chef Chris Douglass. Douglass, who became a fan of eating local long before "locavore" became the buzzword of the moment, uses produce from the farm for his restaurants, including the Ashmont Grill.

This year, on September 10th, the Ashmont will host a fundraiser for the farm, featuring a harvest tasting menu of the farm's best produce. Having been to some scrumptious tasting events at the Ashmont Grill before, I can assure you that this is one dinner you do not want to miss. So grab your best foodie buddy and get your tickets here. Hope to see you there!
