On Sunday April 17th, join Ten Rivers Food Web, Linn-Benton Community College (LBCC), Calapooia Brewing Company, and dozens of local farms for an evening of Cajun food and music – all for a great cause. The dinner will be at Linn-Benton Community College (6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany), and doors open at 4 p.m.

Featuring some of the area’s best chefs – Jason Devrouax, of Clemenza’s in Albany, John Jarschke, of LBCC Culinary Arts, and 2011 Best Chef Northwest James Beard Award nominee Matt Bennett of Sybaris in Albany – the buffet dinner will include gumbos, jambalaya, étouffée, beignets, dirty rice, collard greens, assorted Cajun sausages, vegetarian options and more Cajun delicacies.   A generous offering from Calapooia Brewing Co. means beer is included at no extra cost!  And to really bring the swamp to Albany, Kelly Thibodeaux and Acoustic Etouffee will provide genuine fiddle music straight from Baton Rouge.

Proceeds from the dinner will support the new That’s My Farmer SNAP Incentive Program.  A partnership between Ten Rivers Food Web and farmers’ markets in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln counties, That’s My Farmer will stretch federal food aid for low-income families when they use their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits to purchase fresh, healthy foods at farmers’ markets. The incentive program will provide a $6 bonus to SNAP participants who spend at least $6 at participating farmers’ markets. This program will improve access to local foods for SNAP users along with supporting area farmers and farmers’ markets.

There will also be a donation drawing featuring a bevy of local food gifts such as books by local authors, wine tours, seeds, produce and more!

Tickets are $39 in advance and $45 at the door.  As this is a charitable fundraiser, a significant portion of your ticket will be eligible for tax deduction.  If interested in reserving a table, contact Spencer at 541-602-7279.

Tickets are available at First Alternative Co-op stores in Corvallis and at Sybaris and Clemenza’s restaurants in Albany.
