Harvest Against Hunger 2023

Join us for our 6th annual signature fundraiser, Harvest Against Hunger, where we will gather to celebrate and support our work towards a more sustainable, equitable, and healthier future. This creative collaboration with College of DuPage’s Culinary, Hospitality and Horticulture Departments will be held on Saturday, October 14 from 5-8pm. The event will debut a lemon thyme IPA from Skeleton Key Brewery, “Growing For Good”. 


You don’t want to miss this year’s event, hosted at College of DuPage’s “Street Scene” in Glen Ellyn, which includes some fun, new creative collaborations and experiences. We’re planning a memorable night in this unique and immersive setting, where guests can stroll down a full-scale neighborhood “street” and enjoy the delights of the evening.  

Guests will be treated to creatively curated small plates showcasing local farms’ seasonal produce, skillfully prepared by COD Culinary chefs. Specialty garden cocktails, local brews, live music, and more!. This event debuts a new, custom brew by Skeleton Key Brewery, crafted with herbs and produce grown in our gardens!  Guests will be first to try the brew and pre-order a pack for home! 

All proceeds support our work to improve food security and the local food system, garden by garden.

Tickets are available! Secure your spot today because tickets are limited:

We rely on this fundraiser to support our 2024 programs and participants. Together we can improve the health and wellness of our residents and our environment.

We hope you will join us in the fight against food insecurity, and celebrate the hard work of our food growers as well as those working to improve the local food economy within our region.
