Graze Restaurant and Rush River Brewing Company partnered to host a Beer Dinner on Sunday, June 22. About 80 people attended this $50 per person dinner and proceeds from the meal will benefit the FoodShare Program at the Dane County Farmers’ Market. Thank you, Graze staff, for working to help sustain programming that promotes local foods access and affordable, fresh options!

Farm Fresh for All is back in business, working to connect FoodShare/SNAP recipients with fresh, affordable food options through area farmers’ markets. We are in the process of updating the site with new markets, resources, and news, and just added a new Recipe Links page. This will guide you to other websites with recipes that utilize fresh fruits and vegetables, are available at local farmers’ markets, talk about seasonality and storage, and everything delicious! If you have additional favorite resources you would like to contribute, or you see options that are missing from the links provided, please feel free to leave suggestions in the “comments” section on the page, or email us your feedback to email@example.com. Thank you for your support and patience as we update and spread the word!
