Savor the Season with Harvest Home

Harvest Home LogoFor the second year in a row, the Marcus Samuelsson Group will join Harvest Home Farmer's Market for their annual Savor the Season fundraising event. The dine-around tasting event will benefit Harvest Home's invaluable work bringing farm-fresh food, which includes a network of farmers markets and other healthy food and lifestyle programs, to underserved communities.

We partnered with Harvest Home this summer and sold Red Rooster tacos from the markets, and on September 26 at the Museum of the City of New York, we will combine forces once again to raise money for an excellent organization.

"We are honored to be working with Chef Nils Noren and the Marcus Samuelsson Group, who are supporters of our Eating for Good Health workshops - a leading-edge program designed to address childhood obesity and improve health outcomes through healthy meal preparation in the communities we serve," Maritza Wellington Owens, Chief Executive Officer of Harvest Home Farmer's Market says, "Savor the Season celebrates the accomplishments of these kind of collaborations and builds awareness of our mission to motivate families to Live, Life Healthy."

Harlem Supports Harvest Home

To support the great work of founder Maritza Owens and her farmer's market organization Harvest Home, Harlem's most notable restaurants gathered to taste what each has in store for Fall. Marcus was there along with Red Rooster to kick off the inaugural event and give thanks to the neighborhood. Included in the bites were the Rooster's Teff Noodles with vegetable ragout, Dinosaur BBQ's famous brisket sliders, zucchini and corn pinwheels from Mabel's, and decadent desserts courtesy of Tonnie's and Levain, to name a few.  To read more about the event on FoodRepublic.com, click here and scroll down for more photos from the event.
