Herald Tribune – Un-Forked A Grazing Event


Published: Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 4:07 p.m.
Community partners will help Easter Seals of Southwest Florida raise awareness about the service it provides to people with special needs and their families.

Un-Forked, which is being called a “grazing” event, will feature restaurants and food vendors highlighting locally grown produce, herbs and beverages.

The farm-to-table event will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Easter Seals of Southwest Florida campus, 350 Braden Ave., Sarasota, where the nonprofit’s Academy Farms will feature their freshly harvested herbs and vegetables. All dishes will be “Un-Forked,” meaning now utensils will be used.

“This little seed of an idea has attracted far reaching and diverse partnerships for our community,” Jannon Pierce, director of marketing and development said. “The goal of this event is to increase awareness of Easter Seals, its programs and that of our partners, while also providing a unique, healthy and interactive way to spend your evening.”
