VERO BEACH, Fl. - A savory dinner of seasonal favorites on the pristine lakefront at Schacht Groves was the idyllic setting for Treasure Coast Food Bank’s Fall Harvest Dinner. The celebration of nutritious local food benefitted children, seniors and families struggling with hunger on the Treasure Coast.

The sold-out event took place Nov. 9. Guests enjoyed the beautiful sunset and the sounds of the Blue Cypress Bluegrass Band as they sipped welcome beverages of WildThyme Punch, Tito’s Vodka champagne, and wine selections while bidding on a selection of auction items.

Dinner, created by Wild Thyme Catering, featured Mediterranean Salad with a balsamic vinaigrette, butternut squash, quinoa, and wild rice, asparagus with lemon mustard cream, chicken piccata, and pork loin. The final course was a Passion Fruit Opera Cake created by Healthy Harvest Catering.

Treasure Coast Food Bank President and CEO Judith Cruz welcomed guests and thanked event sponsors, Sal and Sharon Saraniti, the Macrae Family, Port St. Lucie Orchid Society, and Jeffrey S. Braun.

“I want to thank everyone for coming out tonight for our second Fall Harvest Dinner,” she said. “If it wasn’t for your support, we couldn’t do the work we do to provide meals for nearly 90,000 people on the Treasure Coast who struggle with hunger.”
