This year, bon appétit presents Feast Portland was a massive success. Great events and fun times to be had by festival-goers delving into a weekend filled with food and drink. Eating and drinking all weekend sounds like a great idea to me anytime, but indulging for a cause is even better. In the last 4 years, almost a quarter of a million dollars were raised to stop childhood hunger through Feast. Partnering this year with Hunger-Free Oregon, they aim to increase access to breakfast for students in public schools. To learn more check out Why We Feast.
This year I volunteered to bartend for the DIY Bloody Mary Bar by Urban Farmer and 365 by Whole Foods Market. Built on Prairie Organic Vodka, the tomato based mix was prepared by Urban Farmer. Toppings galore adorned the tables providing Brunch Villagers with an over-the-top selection. Mozzarella balls plunked, bacon and Olympia Provisions sausages were skewered, and condiments were splashed, dashed, and sprinkled to taste.
May I say, it is a fantastic idea for your next event, party, or brunch with friends.
