GrowFood Carolina hosts Spring Fling dinner with local chefs, farmers

GrowFood Carolina on Morrison Drive is a food aggregator and distributor working with regional farmers and local restaurants.

Springtime means farm-fresh produce time. Load up on the best of the Lowcountry’s harvest at the GrowFood Carolina’s Spring Fling this weekend.

The dinner will feature chefs from restaurants such as Slightly North of Broad, Page’s Okra Grill, Indaco and Harold’s Cabin. Local farms participating include Anson Mills, Compost in My Shoe, Rosebank Farms, Hickory Bluff and others.

GrowFood Carolina was started by the Coastal Conservation League in 2011 as a wholesale distributor of local produce in a Morrison Drive warehouse. Proceeds and donations collected from the Spring Fling will help GrowFood continue providing 75 farmers and producers across the state the resources and the pipeline they need to reach local restaurants and grocery stores.
