The PSFN Farm to Table team is pleased to announce the success of the very first Farm to Table delivery! Two months ahead of schedule, the first Farm to Table delivery went off without a hitch on Wednesday.
PSFN member Rosy Smit, manager of 21 Acres Farm in Woodinville, personally brought 50 lbs of leeks to Chicken Soup Brigade/Lifelong AIDS Alliance on Capitol Hill. Rosy harvested the leeks herself that very morning – it doesn’t get much fresher than that!
Head Chef, Jim Watkins, and his team prepared the leeks Thursday as Caribbean tilapia dish with lime and leeks. The dish was served with rice pilaf, yams, and mixed vegetables. The PSFN F2T team was able to speak with several Chicken Soup Brigade kitchen staff and volunteers and they were all excited about the product and excited about getting more local produce!
Chef Watkins grew up on a family farm in Virginia, himself, and had very kind words to say about the important work our local farmers are doing.
Congratulations to 21 Acres and to Chicken Soup Brigade for making the first successful Farm to Table linkage! PSFN and the CPPW Farm to Table Partnership is very confident that we’re on our way to a smoothly operating and sustainable Farm to Table model!
