Eco Appetito is Sunday, September 16th!

The 5th Annual Eco Appetito will take place Sunday, September 16th from Noon - 3pm at Vignola Cinque Terre Restaurant in Portland. Eco Appetito is a celebration of Maine foods, desserts and beverages. Restaurant owner and chef Lee Skawinski and his team will create a scrumptious menu using food items donated by local bakers, fishermen, butchers, farmers and dairies. Event attendees will be treated to delicious treats and fantastic silent auction items.

Silent auction items include overnight getaways, sailing excursions, theater tickets, sports items, Maine crafted items, art, food and product baskets and gift cards of all kinds. For a complete list of food vendors and silent auction items, visit www.ecoappetito.org

Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. Tickets may be purchased online or by contacting Maureen Duggan at 239-7094 or maureen@fbes.org.

All proceeds from Eco Appetito benefit the Food for Thought program at Ferry Beach Ecology School in Saco. Ferry Beach Ecology School teaches the science of ecology and the practice of sustainability to elementary and middle school students throughout New England at its ocean side campus on Saco Bay. All lessons are taught outdoors keeping young people active and engaged in the learning process. The campus features eight eco systems within walking distance including the beach, the forest, sand dunes, tide pools and the salt marsh. Ferry Beach Ecology School celebrates healthy food choices by offering locally grown, organic products in the dining hall as much as possible and by teaching food systems in the organic teaching garden and with the onsite compost system.
