Random Harvest

Random Harvest takes place November 1st through November 30th. Throughout the month we are focusing on local efforts to improve lives and enrich community. As part of that focus we are joining Food and Friends in their Slice of Life Campaign. Throughout November, the Old Town North Community Partnership will be working with residents and local businesses to highlight those whose contributions make up the fabric of the neighborhood and supporting those in need.

November 1st -18th, we partner with Food And Friends in the Slice of Life Campaign. Do Good, Feel Good, Buy a Pie. A percentage of the Sale of each pie goes to those coping with serious illness. Food and Friends hope to raise $350,000 through the sale of 10,000 pies. The Old Town North Community Partnership plans to help them meet that goal. Pies can be ordered at the Old Town North Market Community Table and at participating businesses and organizations.. Orders may be placed on line www.foodandfriends.org/pie 202-269-6826  Team name: Old Town North Community Partnership, or at participating businesses and the community table at the Farmer’s Market.
