LOUISVILLE — The Food Literacy Project is hosting its ninth annual Field-to-Fork Dinner on Thursday, Aug. 23, at The Regency in Louisville. Its goal for the event is to increase the organization’s capacity to give young people and families positive experiences with fresh, healthful foods, raising $100,000 to support the development of an urban farm classroom and food education and access program in South Louisville at Iroquois Farm.
The Voice-Tribune spotlighted The Food Literacy Project and our Executive Director Carol Gundersen.
Since 2006, more than 40,000 people have participated in planting, harvesting and preparing fresh food through Food Literacy Project’s hands-on Field-to-Fork program. The organization grew out of a demand recognized by farmer Ivor Chodkowski for access to a working farm where children and families could explore the story behind their food.
