Ivanna Farms in Bedford Corners will be the beautiful and bucolic setting for Mount Kisco Child Care Center’s (MKCCC) 13th annual Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening benefit on Saturday, September 16, 5:30 p.m.; all proceeds are earmarked for MKCCC’s need-based scholarship programs. Over 50% of MKCCC families are low-income children who depend on partial tuition assistance to help them obtain high-quality early childhood education.
The event will feature delicious food from more than 20 local Northern Westchester restaurants that subscribe to the same culinary philosophy as MKCCC which has created a seed-to-table nutrition program called “Feed Me Fresh.” This is a hands-on curriculum that educates MKCCC students to have a natural appreciation for fresh, whole food. In addition to culinary delights from these restaurants, live music and an auction will offer attendees an enjoyable evening.
MKCCC will also be honoring Eric Hadar, the owner of Ivanna Farms and the event host as well as a long-time supporter of MKCCC. Among other honorees: Fran Osborne, who has served on the MKCCC’s Board of Directors since 2008 and ‘Team Amy’ which was established to honor Amy Marie Crabtree who died in 2009 of a brain tumor. The Amy Marie Crabtree Foundation raises money and donates 100% to causes that Amy supported during her lifetime. Amy and her husband, John, participated in the First Feed Me Fresh event at Crabtree’s Kittle House.
MKCCC is a nonprofit, accredited childcare facility that provides quality, affordable, early-care and education to a diverse group of children, ages three months to 11 years. Tickets to the event are $250 per person. For additional information about MKCCC or the event, visit www.mkccc.org/feed-me-fresh-event.
