Join Massachusetts State Senator Adam Hinds and Berkshire Grown chefs as they celebrate the coming of spring at the Spring Supper on Monday, April 8, 2019. Host chef Alex Hammond of the Mezze Restaurant Group has assembled a talented group of local chefs: Daire Rooney Corcoran from Morgan’s at Interlaken Inn, Alex Hammond from Mezze Catering, James Lowe of the Pittsfield Country Club, Peter Platt from The Old Inn on The Green, and Doria Polinger of H.R. Zepplin Fine Handmade Chocolates. The chefs are collaborating on a farm-to-table menu that will highlight the freshness of the spring season. This year’s event is at the Country Club of Pittsfield and benefits Berkshire Grown and its win-win project, Share the Bounty.
Share the Bounty supports farmers through the purchase of local CSA farm shares and helps feed hungry families by giving that farm-fresh food to local food pantries and community kitchens as well as WIC families.
Guests will have the opportunity to bid on dinner and wine pairing for eight at The Old Inn on the Green and to sponsor shares in Share the Bounty. “Share the Bounty is a win-win scenario that supports local farmers by buying CSA shares, and at the same time makes healthy, fresh food accessible to our community members experiencing food insecurities,” says Berkshire Grown Executive Director Margret Moulton.
Massachusetts State Senator Adam Hinds is Honorary Chair of the Event Committee; joined by Allison Rachele Bayles, Hester Velmans & Peter Cherneff, Kathy & Neil Chrisman and Berkshire Agricultural Ventures, Roberta & Steven Haas, Silka Glanzman & Jake Levin, Martha Sauer & David Rosenthal, Marjorie & Barry Shapiro, Lee Venolia & Jay Thoman.
