Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee is teaming up with local farmers and chefs to present the annual The Farmer & The Chef fundraiser ON Thursday, Sept. 12.

Proceeds will go directly to help feed individuals and families, children, and seniors in this region who, a news release stated, will otherwise go hungry because of lack of access to food.

The fundraiser will be held at the Blackthorn Club at The Ridges, in Jonesborough, at 6 p.m.

Local farmers and chefs will come together to create a unique culinary experience using available seasonal products.

The news release from Second Harvest says that the event will also help establish sustainable relationships between local farmers and chefs that are vital to the well being of the community.

Allen, executive chef of Blackthorn Grille at The Ridges, in Jonesborough; Larry Barbeau, corporate executive chef for K-VA-T Foods, Inc.; Kate Van Huss, community relations manager at Earth Fare, in Johnson City; Chef Mickey Rhoden and Chef Drew Rafalowski of Yong Asian House, in Gray; and Chef Michelle Reuter of Basic 2 Brilliant Catering, in Johnson City.

Chefs will prepare culinary dishes using available products provided by local farmers.


Farms that will contribute products include: Chapo's Chile Patch, owned by Jeff and Jolene Stratton, of Jonesborough; Dungan Farms, co-owned by Blair Eldred and Jeff Eaton, master grower; Food City locally-grown produce; Grains by Lori Love, of Kingsport; Lil' Sprouts, owned by Laura Fitzgerald, of Gray; Preservation Farms, owned by Matthew Dobson, of Telford; and R & D Farms, owned by Dale Myers, of Bristol.


The event will also include silent and live auctions with a wide range of items.

The food bank is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Gray, and is a member of Feeding America, the nation's largest food bank network.
