In April our Vice President of Charity by Design, Nicki Castonguay-Maher, attended an Evening with Farm Aid in New York City at Haven’s Kitchen to celebrate our upcoming partnership.
The evening’s honoree was Chipotle Founder and Chairman Steve Ells, who received a “Courage Axe” for his leadership in bringing sustainable family farmer food to more people. Farm Aid Artist Amos Lee also performed for the audience.
“It was so great to see how many other companies and individuals support this amazing organization,” notes Nicki, explaining how wonderful it was “to be in a setting all about culture, food, music and support; it really gave the night a great vibe. It also gave perspective and a clear view of what’s ahead for our partnership with Farm Aid.”
We are so excited about our relationship with Farm Aid and the future of our partnership. Stay tuned for some exciting updates and events!
