The Rainier Valley Food Bank (RVFB) announced that its Community Harvest Gala “Grow with us Virtually” will be livestreamed from 6pm onwards on Saturday, November 14th, 2020. Tickets for the virtual event, which is being powered by interactive livestream technology company Zeacon, is on sale now and all proceeds will go directly to RVFB to support and feed local communities.

Founded in 1991 as a volunteer-led neighborhood pantry, RVFB is currently the busiest food bank in Seattle out of 26 area food banks. Operating from its tiny 1,200-square foot facility, the food bank fulfills over 6,000 requests for food monthly. RVFB’s November 14th fundraiser features an interactive, livestreamed cooking class with renowned chef and owner of the Jerk Shack, Trey Lamont, who will share how to prepare his famous Rasta Pasta Caribbean dish. We will also have a live band, an exciting auction, and more – all delivered virtually to the safety and comfort of your home.

“Rainier Valley Food Bank invites all our friends throughout Greater Seattle to join our Community Harvest Gala. By attending, you will enable us to provide fresh, culturally-relevant produce to the Food Bank’s many guests, and help bring students and their families to the table over nourishing meals,” said Gloria Hatcher-Mays, Executive Director of RVFB. “Join us in empowering others during their time of need to find resources and address issues underlying food insecurity. Your support can help us realize a hunger-free Rainier Valley.”

“Zeacon is honored to partner with Rainer Valley Food Bank to produce their Community Harvest Gala,” said Kris Naidu, Zeacon CEO. “Studies have shown that hunger can happen to anyone and that 1 in 5 Washingtonians rely on their local food bank. RVFB has been a trusted community resource that offers a variety of services from school meals, grocery deliveries to the elderly and disabled, and even employment, medical, and housing programs. As a socially responsible company, this collaboration with RVFB is another example of how Zeacon Intelligently Connects Communities.”

Attendees and organizations have a variety of ways to participate to make this year’s fundraiser more memorable. Seattle-area participants may purchase online any of several packages to compliment the virtual with physical goodies (wine, cooking ingredients, and swag). RVFB is also accepting donations online or by check. For more information, visit rvfb.org
