Birmingham Restaurant Week’s final event of 2017 teamed up 10 Alabama farmers and 10 Alabama chefs to create a delicious Harvest Brunch in the heart of Woodlawn. Local farm-fresh ingredients were the centerpiece of each dish at the brunch festival, held at Woodlawn’s SocialVenture on Saturday, October 7.
REV thanks the farmers, restaurants, beverage distributors, volunteers and sponsors who worked together to make this event happen. Learn about the featured farmers in our Meet the Farmers photo gallery and see photos from the event on our Facebook page. Thanks, also, to City Meats and Vegetables for hosting the event’s first kids’ cereal bar and mini-movie theater! It was a hit, not only with the kids, but with adults too!
Harvest Brunch proceeds benefit REV’s Urban Food Project, which assists in making sure the freshest ingredients find their way to Birmingham grocery stores, corner stores and dinner tables, giving residents access to healthy, locally-sourced food.
