19TH ANNUAL ‘FEED ME FRESH: AN EDIBLE EVENING’ CELEBRATES LOCAL CUISINE AND COMMUNITY IN SUPPORT OF MOUNT KISCO CHILD CARE CENTER’S MISSION
A Culinary Fundraiser at Ivanna Farms Promises an Unforgettable Evening, Honoring Notable Community Members and Benefiting MKCCC’s Scholarship Program
August 15, 2023 (Mount Kisco, NY) – Mount Kisco Child Care Center (MKCCC), a non-profit committed to providing equitable access to high-quality child care and early education to a diverse group of children, is thrilled to announce the 19th Annual “Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening” fundraiser, taking place on Saturday, September 23rd, 2023, at 5:30 PM at the picturesque Ivanna Farms in Mount Kisco.
MKCCC, serving working families in Westchester since 1971, currently nurtures 145 children from 3 months to 11 years old in full-day care, before-school, after-school, and summer camp programs. At the heart of MKCCC’s award-winning curriculum lies the Feed Me Fresh program, a garden-to-table nutrition initiative that includes gardens outside of each classroom.
Inspired by MKCCC’s innovative curriculum of the same name, “Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening” is an event where top local restaurants come together to donate an evening of culinary excellence highlighting the importance of fresh, nutritious and delicious food for children and in support of families in need within the community. Their involvement has helped the event become a truly unique tasting experience as well as a critical fundraiser.
All proceeds from the evening will directly support the MKCCC’s scholarship fund, underlining our dedication to making high-quality child care accessible for all families in our community.
This year, MKCCC is privileged to honor its 2023 recipients, who have shown consistent, invaluable support:
- Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation, our Foundation Partner
- Pamela Stone of The Benefit Shop Foundation, a Longtime Supporter
- Mimi Tesfaye of Mimi’s Coffee House, a Feed Me Fresh Supporter and Longtime Restaurant Participant
In addition, there will be a special remembrance of a great friend, Twink Wood, who contributed so much to MKCCC for more than 30 years.
The MKCCC invites you to join this celebration of local flavors, sustainability, and community. This promises to be an evening to remember – a testament to community spirit, philanthropy, and the transformative power of fresh food and education.
Tickets are now available for purchase at mkccc.org. Come enjoy a beautiful autumn evening, celebrating and supporting the mission and community of Mount Kisco.
