America’s Grow-a-Row’s (AGAR) Farm to Fork event on Saturday, May 10 was a success. Held at Life Camp in Pottersville, the sold-out event featured local food artisans, a farm fresh dinner and fine auctions. Congressman Leonard Lance served as the Keynote Speaker at Farm to Fork and presented the flag that was flown over the United States Capitol in honor of America’s Grow-a-Row.
Sponsors for the event included Greenman-Pedersen, Inc., The Vein Institute of Hunterdon, ExxonMobil, GlaxoSmithKline, PSE&G, ShopRite of Hunterdon County, IH Engineers, P.C., and PKB Engineering.
Proceeds raised at the event will help AGAR reach their 2014 goals of donating over one million pounds of farm-fresh food to various hunger relief agencies in New Jersey while at the same time educating people of all ages about hunger, the importance of agriculture, and healthy eating.
