Sept 30 saw 300 guests dining on all local food from an extensive menu. The event was the 7th annual staging of the dinner and featured live music, and speakers who brought their unique perspective to the issues of sustainability, local food systems and economies.

The Jeff Fairhall Local Food Hero Award went to Aviva Furman, founding director of Community Harvest of South Seattle. Since 2007 this organization has picked and distributed more than 13,000 pounds of surplus residential fruit and serves as an inspiration for gardeners through the Garden Helper Program and the Edible Garden Tour. Furman is a Food Sense educator at White Center Heights Elementary.
