food fest 2About The Benefit:

The Bolinas Community Center (BCC) continues to provide a welcoming facility for classes, events, social gatherings and recreation in the center of Downtown Bolinas. The focus of this year’s Food Festival is to showcase the local food talent in West Marin and to raise money for the BCC’s continued kitchen upgrade.

Once the kitchen is remodeled more food vendors will be able to use the space, cooking classes for youth and adults can be created and the whole community will benefit from having a fully functional and up-to-date Community Kitchen. Our goal is to raise $10,000.00. All proceeds from this event go to the BCC kitchen remodeling fund to update kitchen cabinetry, purchase an ice machine and retile the kitchen floor up-to-code.

Advertising:

We will be advertising in local papers, with flyers, and live on event-day with KWMR radio coverage. If you are a chef, food vendor or farmer and would like a live interview to promote your business please let us know ASAP so we can get you scheduled in.

Any questions or to volunteer, please respond by email or call Lia at (415) 868-2128 or email lia@bocenter.org.
