RISE Up! Dinner with Purpose
July 24 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm$200
Join Change Food and RISE at an upcycled, repurposed benefit dinner aptly named RISE Up! Dinner with Purpose to celebrate successful efforts to combat food waste. The unique meal, hosted by Rouge Tomate Chelsea, will include RISE’s unique flours made from the spent grain of the beer-brewing process.
Dinner will include four courses crafted by Rouge Tomate’s Executive Chef Andy Bennett, incorporating RISE flour and additional upcycled ingredients, such as Gotham Green’s “Ugly Greens” and produce from Baldor’s SparCs program. Guests will get to sample beers made from the grains used to make the flour along with a craft cocktail incorporating vodka from Simple Spirits and Love Grace’s Watermelon Water along with beer from four local breweries – Keg & Lantern, Kings County Brewers Collective, Strong Rope Brewery, and Threes Brewing. There will also be a gift bag and raffle.
The RISE Up! dinner is a benefit for Change Food to support its efforts to change the food system and help grassroots groups gain more attention and support for their successful work.
