Tickets are available for $28 per person (food only) or $42 per person (food and three pints).
Celebrating the rich cultural fabric that has shaped the food and beverage industry, Feed Diversity aims to raise awareness and funds for local refugee charities Global Growers and Friends of Refugees. The outdoor tasting event will feature Second Self pours and a pig roast and grilled chicken from Chef Andre Gomez of Porch Light Latin Kitchen in collaboration with Riverview Farms, Springer Mountain Farms and Big Green Egg. There will also be bites from Hyatt Regency, King of Pops, Saltyard, The Shed at Glenwood, South of Heaven BBQ, Steinbeck’s Ale House, and Taiyo Ramen.
