THANK YOU to everyone who helped make Farm to Fork another

The LifeCamp dining room set the tone to celebrate 15 years of growing, gleaning, and giving. Thanks to local merchants and AGAR supporters, our Farm to Fork raffle baskets and silent auction featured over 70 generous prize packages. Our timeline showed the journey from 120 pounds of fresh produce donated in 2002 to our current total of over 6.2 million pounds! 

During our opening reception, guests enjoyed a wine and craft beer tasting sponsored by Michael Cedro of Riverside Wines & Liquors along with samples of amazing artisan foods from BobolinkBooker & ZincMetropolitan Seafood & GourmetFulper Family Farmstead, and Readington River Farm. We would like to extend a big thanks to our vendors and to the amazing crew of teen volunteers that kept the event flowing smoothly from start to finish.
 
Our speaking program featured our President & Founder: Chip Paillex, Special Guest Speaker: Governor Christine Todd Whitman, our Special Honoree: Impact 100 Garden State, and AGAR Board Chair: Jackie Etter.
