Each year at holiday time, as a way to generate funds for their organization, a very limited number of Food Forward Gift Crates which are filled with tasty small-batch, house-made gourmet foods and stylish Food Forward merchandise are sold. All of the food items are made with seasonal, locally harvested produce which is preserved within days of harvesting by the Can It! Crew of volunteers.
Inside your 2012 Food Forward Gift Crate you’ll find:
GINGERED MEYER LEMON MARMALADE - great spread on toast or stirred in with yoghurt
GRAPEFRUIT ROSEMARY SIMPLE SYRUP - the perfect ingredient for that special cocktail, or drizzled across a dessert
PRESERVED MEYER LEMONS – a salt brine and Moroccan spices give these lemons their depth of flavor. Use several sections to stuff you favorite poultry, or chop finely and mix in for a great addition to salad dressings, marinades, hummus or other savory dishes.
PERSIMMON CINNAMON TEA – a delightful and light herbal tea that can be drunk hot or cold, just follow the directions on the back of the bag.
* A Food Forward light-weight hoodie
* A Food Forward baseball cap
* A Foodsteader apron
* Two Orange Pomanders (traditional fragrant French-inspired holiday decoration with a history reaching back to the 15th century.)
All money raised from the sale of gift crates goes directly back to the organization’s programs to harvest more food for our community’s most vulnerable.
PRICE: $125 (+ $25 for local LA area delivery or UPS national ground shipping)
