About the event
Butternut Squash are nutritious, packing a good amount of vitamin c, vitamin a, and potassium into each serving.
We will be transforming 175 lbs of Butternut Squash into 500 servings of soup for local food bank clients and we need some support with all the associated chopping, cooking, and cleaning tasks.
This is a project of the Carver Food Enterprise Center in collaboration with NoVa Food Rescue. Thanks to the PATH Foundation for providing funding for this event!
This event is open to anyone age 16 and up with basic knife skills.
There is no cost to participate, but we ask that you secure a free ticket here so we can plan for equipment and teams for various tasks. Donations are always welcome as we are raising funds to build phase 2 and 3 of the kitchen which will allow us to host more events like this in the future. All donations are tax-deductible.
