Fundraiser Announced for Boston Local Food Festival
The Sustainable Business Network (SBN) of Massachusetts has launched an online fundraiser for its fourth Annual Boston Local Food Festival. The goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of March in order to plan a successful event. The festival will be held on October 6.
SBN is using a local business, Fundraise.com, as its campaign platform. “The Sustainable Business Network relies on sponsors, donors and volunteers in order to make this event happen,” says Taryn Johnson, marketing and communications coordinator. “The festival is dependent upon support by the community.”
SBN’s mission is to provide healthy, local food for everyone. The Boston Local Food Festival promotes local and sustainable food by bringing together farmers, producers, buyers, chefs, community leaders and individuals. The festival features do-it-yourself events, chef demonstrations, live music and, of course, lots of delicious food. It is also a Zero Waste event; the 2012 festival diverted 91 percent of its waste.
“If readers support the Boston Local Food Festival fundraiser, SBN can provide an educational, creative and celebratory event that will bring locally grown and sustainably produced food to the Boston area,” says Johnson. “SBN believes in fostering relationships within our community and any support will be acknowledged by the organization on a number of levels.”
