STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Norwalk-based nonprofit organization that uses technology to pair rescued food with those who need it most is set to hold its signature fundraising event at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4.
Community Plate's Food for All — to be held at The Loading Dock, 375 Fairfield Ave., Stamford — is to feature some of the newest restaurants in the area, according to event organizers.
Kevin Mullins, executive director and co-founder of Community Plates, said the organization has, since 2011, provided more than 12 million pounds of food to neighborhood locals.
"Powered by our proprietary technology and our innovative hunger relief model, every bit of this food has been rescued by over 320 volunteer food runners from our area," he said. “This event is a double whammy of fun and impact. Last year we were able to rescue and deliver over 1.5 million meals with the funds we raised at the event and we are hoping to make an even larger dent in Fairfield County hunger this year.”
Attendees to this year's event will have the opportunity to learn more about Community Plates, its software and its award-winning web and smartphone apps, organizers said.
This year’s craft cocktail bars will be presented by the mix masters of Harbor Point in Stamford, Paloma, Sign of the Whale and Fortina. Corporate sponsors include Whole Foods, Northern Trust, Nestle Waters, Diageo, Go Nation, The Loading Dock and Uber.
