American Farmland Trust was chosen by the Culinary Institute of America’s senior class to be the beneficiary of their recent gala event, Harvest on the Hudson . Each senior class at the Culinary Institute of America, based in Hyde Park, New York, hosts a dinner to benefit a charity of interest.
“Students at the Culinary Institute of America love their farmers,” said Michael Ramella, Culinary Institute senior and event general manager. “Our program stresses the entire process of producing fine cuisine, from farm to fork. Choosing American Farmland Trust was a no-brainer. With the rapid depletion of farmland nationwide, we collectively agreed that all of our fundraising would be best utilized through the American Farmland Trust. Every penny we raise will help support the hardworking farmers of our beautiful Hudson Valley.”
