Final Bringing in Ballard event to “Celebrate Harvest” this Friday

The final Bringing in Ballard event “Celebrate Harvest” is set for this Friday, November 18m from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at St Luke’s Episcopal Church (5710 22nd Ave NW)

Renowned chef Bruce Naftaly will match wits and hotplates with teams of volunteers from St. Luke’s Edible Hope program and the Ballard Food Bank, using produce from urban gardens and typical food bank donations.

Locals are invited to be the “audience” for this madcap mix of “Iron Chef” meets “Chopped.” There will be an emcee, local celebrity judges (Pie Queen Mary Schile and EatBallard’s Gerard Wirz). Ballard’s Dog Bone will also be playing blues music to entertain attendees.

The event is free, however, participants are asked to bring a dish for the potluck, which can be submitted for guest judging. Participants are also encouraged to bring canned or packaged food to donate to the Ballard Food Bank.

Bringing In Ballard Friday night socials launched in November last year to connect newcomers to long-time residents in our neighborhood. The events are funded by a Small and Simple Grant from the City of Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods.

The Steering Committee will also use this final event as an opportunity to thank its partners and the organizations and individuals who have shared stories and products over the last year, from social clubs to maritime, home, gardens and transportation.
