Participating businesses throughout Santa Barbara County will each hold a unique fundraiser (such as donating proceeds from sales of a special wine or 10 percent of sales) from now through Jan. 6.
The fundraising campaign was conceived by Leslie Mead Renaud, director of winemaking for Lincourt Vineyards and Foley Estate Winery, and Clarissa Nagy, winemaker at Nagy Wines and consulting winemaker at Riverbench Vineyard and Winery, to support the Foodbank. Emily Einolander of Ampelos Cellars also has been an integral part, donating her time and design work for the collaboration.
The goal for each participating business is to raise $1,000, with a total campaign goal of $100,000. The fundraising campaign is also meant to be fun and competitive as businesses are encouraged to call out specific individuals or groups to challenge them on a personal level.
The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County is transforming health by eliminating hunger and food insecurity through good nutrition and food literacy. The Foodbank provides nourishment and education through its award-winning programs and a network of more than 300 member nonprofit partners.
In Santa Barbara County, one in four people receive food support from the Foodbank; over 102,000 unduplicated people of whom 44 percent are children. Last year, the Foodbank distributed the food and resources to support 8.5 million meals — half of which was fresh produce. Click here for more information.
CAROL KOZLOWSKI - KOZLOWSKI FARMS
At Kozlowski Farms, when we say—"it's just like my grandmother used to make"— we mean it. All our products began with founder Carmen Kozlowski's legendary recipes, including old fashioned jams, no sugar apple butter, no sugar fruit spreads and homemade pies - including Carmen's fabulous Gravenstein Apple Pie. We believe that the best foods from Salad Dressings to Chipotle Grilling Sauces begin with the very best ingredients.
As one of Sonoma County's oldest family-owned farms, we're big on tradition—the kind where everyone stops what they're doing and comes to the table.
Look for our monthly KozClub! Specials. Every month we feature select products at special promotional prices. ON SALE for the month of DECEMBER is the entire line of old fashioned Jams.
