WHAT: Hyatt Regency volunteers help distribute fresh produce and operate the Tasting Table, part of the Sprout Mobile Farm Market program
WHEN: Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Executive Chef Kory Foltz will prepare his Veggie Pasta Salad for the Sprout tasting table that gives clients the opportunity to taste a dish prepared with fresh produce. They will then take the recipe and fresh ingredients with them to make the dish at home. Volunteers from the Hyatt will help Sprout visitors with selecting and packaging fruits and vegetables to also take home to their families.
Most of the seasonal produce is donated to All Faiths Food Bank from local retailers and farms, about 25% is purchased by the Food Bank.

All year round the Hyatt Sarasota volunteers at All Faiths Food Bank, but in September, National Hunger Action Month, they raise awareness about hunger by lighting the side of their building with an impressive and colorful display that says “fight hunger” in white over orange spotlights. Orange is the color of hunger and Hyatt guests can also purchase orange desserts and specialty drinks with proceeds benefiting All Faiths Food Bank.
