Per Montlake Elementary:
Here’s a great way to get healthy, yummy food and support our 5th graders’ annual trip to Islandwood. Each year Montlake has to consider whether or not to continue attending Islandwood because of its cost. “What I love about that camp is how well it connects to so much of what we strive for at Montlake and allows the kids to take their environmental and sustainability knowledge and see it put into place in a larger context,” says Cheri Bloom.
This spring we are working with an organization called FarmRaiser, who match schools to local farms and food artisans. So instead of buying chocolate or magazines subscriptions, Montlake parents can buy a box of local food products. The profits are split between our school (45%), the farms (45%) and FarmRaiser (10%).We have partnered with FarmRaiser to offer families the opportunity to buy a box of gourmet, local food. The proceeds will support the trip to Islandwood.
The box costs $55 and contains:
- Macrina Bakery‘s Vollkorn Loaf
- Bow Hill Blueberry‘s Pickled Blueberries
- That Brown Girl Cooks Ethiopian Black Eyed Pea Hummus
- Loki Fish‘s cold-smoked wild coho lox
- 1/2 lb spinach from Willie Greens Organic Farm
- A special selection of two 60mL bottles of olive oil & vinegar from Queen Anne Olive Oil Company
The deadline to order is May 15. The food will be available for pick-up at the Eat Real Food & Art Walk event on May 30. To purchase a box, please visit the FarmRaiser website: http://farmraiser.seeyourimpact.org/montlake/
