August Month of Giving
Eschelon dedicates four months of the year to give back to our core nonprofit partners. We ask our guests to come alongside the restaurants in supporting these amazing causes by adding $1 (or more) to their bill. Our goal for August: Raise $10,000 for Raleigh City Farm!
August 2015 is an Eschelon “Month of Giving” to support Raleigh City Farm. Each dollar our guests give will be matched by two awesome $2,500 “matchers”: Mako Medical Laboratories and Modern Woodmen. These companies are making sure we’re already half way to our goal with their combined $5,000 donations!
Raleigh City Farm is a nonprofit that focuses on growing new urban farms and farm entrepreneurs to strengthen sustainable, healthy food systems. While their footprint is in downtown Raleigh off Person Street, their impact is felt in farming communities across eastern North Carolina.
Where will the donations go?
All the funds given by our guests and matched by our partners – Mako & Modern Woodmen – will go directly to Raleigh City Farm.
Where can I give?
Donate at any Eschelon restaurant during the month of August! 100% of all funds you add to your bill will go directly to Raleigh City Farm.
More about Raleigh City Farm
Raleigh City Farm is a high-production community supported urban farm and food hub founded in 2011. They operate as a social enterprise nonprofit, and their mission is to grow new urban farms and farm entrepreneurs to strengthen sustainable, healthy food systems.
City Farm is host to multiple semi-autonomous farm entrepreneurs. The food they grow is sold into the community through restaurant sales, CSA shares, and on-site farmstand. They adhere to ecological and appropriate technological growing practices and strive to serve as a model urban farm.
In addition to on-site production, Raleigh City Farm supports new farm entrepreneurs throughout the Piedmont. They do this by acting as a food hub and facilitating access to various urban markets. They also provide opportunities for community engagement that allow the public to broaden their understanding of how food is grown and how it gets to our tables.
