Support Green Plate Special - Thursday, June 2nd

Green Plate Special is Thursday, June 2nd

Please join Green Plate Special, a nonprofit organization that offers free garden-to-table programs for low-income middle school youth, for a neighborhood meet & greet and their first fundraiser!

Cortona Café
2425 East Union Street, Seattle WA 98122
6:30 to 8:30pm

Bring a neighbor or friend and stop in to say hello! You will enjoy:

*Tasty snacks and beverages
*Tours of the garden and property
*A slide show of our work and future program
*Seed planting for young people

All funds raised during this event will go directly to Green Plate Special's programming for youth in our neighborhood. Consider supporting the organization with:

- allowing the youth of Green Plate Special to plant vegetables, giving them hands on experience with nutritious food.

$35 - helps build partnerships in the community to provide free programming.

$100- helps build the kitchen where youth will learn how easy it is to cook delicious and nutritious food.

There are many ways for you to get involved including:

*In-kind donations – Do you own a restaurant, have a spare shovel or a garden gnome?
*Host a “garden party” – Help spread the word about Green Plate Special and raise needed funds to impact youth in the area.
*Find out if your company matches your donation – many of our local companies do
Volunteer – Are you an expert in social media, a master gardener or just have free time. We want you!

We look forward to seeing you there!
