Blues for Food Fest

Good music. Delicious food. Great friends. Enthusiastic gardeners...
Really, what could be better?

Join us at the 6th annual Blues for Food Fest on Saturday September 1st! You will enjoy live music by some of the finest blues bands in the Northwest, fresh tasty food from local vendors, a fabulous auction of luscious, homemade pies, and exciting children’s gardening activities.

Blues for Food Fest raises money and awareness for the people, gardens, and organizations in Seattle that grow and donate 28,000 pounds of organic produce each year for the hungry! Proceeds from the festival go to P-Patch Giving Gardens, the P-Patch Trust and the Washington Blues Society’s Musicians Relief Fund.

Lettuce Link will be there manning our favorite booth -- Beet Hunger -- where you can donate your homegrown produce and non-perishables! After the festival we will deliver all donations to a local food bank or meal program.
