Elev8 Food – Elimin8 Hunger
Saturday, June 30 at 7:00 PM
Nove Italiano, Palms Casino + Resort
On June 20, 2018 from 7 PM – 10 PM Nove Italiano at the newly remodeled Palms Casino + Resort will be home to a 200 person, culinary fête, benefiting Urban Seed Foundation. An army of local and national celebrity Chef’s will partner to create a unique and purposeful menu, featuring locally grown produce from our smart famring partners, and from our community student-run gardens! Urban Seed Foundation’s (www.urbanseedfoundation.org) 8 GALA is our annual fundraising event to celebrate growth, community contribution and our partnerships in Las Vegas. We are committed to expanding the USF program offerings, and to the continued development of additional community gardens. In the past year we have created food access points, nutrition education, cooking demonstrations, healthy community events, 5K2Farm Races and, most importantly, the empowerment of thousands of at-risk people in need. Our vision is to educate as many people as possible on how food is grown and why it is important to make healthy food-secure decisions. Our food access points and food distribution program have been consistantly delivering hundreds of pounds of healthy fresh locally grown produce to thousands of people every month for the past year. There are still so many more who we can reach, through your support, your generosity, donations and participation.
Our reach touches school children, K-12, homeless youth, rehabilitating veterans, and other community members facing food insecurity. We advocate for legislation and passionately lecture throughout the state to share information, educate and engage, causing real community action. The joy we experience when working in the community is priceless. Being of service to the people of Las Vegas, those who are often overlooked and in-need, are at the heart of our mission.
