Side Dishes: Leftover food news

Published September 23, 2009 at 5:27 a.m.

Local food undoubtedly comes with a higher price tag. But, thanks to a collaboration between NOFA Vermont and 50 area farmers, more than 1400 low-income residents and families were able to buy half-priced farm shares in 2009.

The nonprofit funds the program in part through a yearly event called “Share the Harvest.” Want to help? Patronize any of 80 participating restaurants and food stores on Thursday, October 1. The businesses — including Fire & Ice in Middlebury, the Black Door Bar & Bistro in Montpelier and Toscano Café Bistro in Richmond — will donate up to 15 percent of their daily profits to the cause.
