Proceeds from the Farm Feast dinners are used to purchase the produce and products from local farmers and to support The Kitchen Diva Health Outreach Project to provide healthy food education information and nutritious meals for under-served Central Texas communities. We use the money we raise from the Dinners to provide free lunches using local farm produce in conjunction with Central Texas community health fairs. This is often the first time that many of the health fair attendees have an opportunity to taste ethnic and American comfort foods and heritage recipes prepared using fresh, local vegetables and nutritious ingredients and to get information about diet-related illnesses.
