2018 Culinary Collage to benefit Fletcher Place Community Center

Saturday, May 20 at UIndy’s Schwitzer Student Center, 1 – 4 p.m.

CULINARY COLLAGE

Sunday, May 20, 2018 from 1-4:00 pm in the Schwitzer Student Center on the University of Indianapolis campus.

ADMISSION: Simply bring a $10 Kroger gift card (to help stock the FPCC food pantry) OR pay $15 at the door! Children 12 & under are FREE, but are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for the food pantry and must be accompanied by an adult.

PRESCHOOL

The Fletcher Place Preschool is an affordable, level 3 Paths to Quality neighborhood-based program. Our preschool offers scholarships and financial aid for children ages 3-5 to enable them to attend our FULL DAY programming. Our preschool has been a safe and interactive program helping children develop and reach their potential since 1930.

COMMUNITY GARDEN

The neighborhood Fletcher Place serves is considered a “food desert” (an urban area where it is difficult to buy affordable or good-quality fresh food). This is why we love our garden – it brings affordable, accessible, healthy food options and a little outdoor living to our community!

In 2017, over 1 ton of fruits and vegetables were grown, harvested, and distributed to our neighbors in need! And although our garden is powered by awesome volunteers, we do rely on financial support and donations to cover supplies, which is why our Culinary Collage event is so important – 100% of the proceeds from Culinary Collage will directly benefit FPCC programs like our Seeds of Hope Community Garden!
