We invite you to bid on an online "foodie extravaganza" auction throughout the month of September. There are incredibly unique and amazing "foodie" prizes up for grabs, donated by many Santa Monica restaurants (including Rustic Canyon, Huckleberry Cafe, The Hungry Cat, Andrew's Cheese Shop, Blue Plate Oysterette, and The Mistfit). You can see all of the items available for bidding here: https://growinggreat.dojiggy.com. The auction is going on now until September 30th.
All of the money raised from this online auction will go directly to GrowingGreat, a school garden and nutrition education nonprofit. For over 10 years, GrowingGreat has been providing garden and in-class nutrition lessons around LA, and our programs are in 8 local school districts. The funds raised from this auction will go towards garden and nutrition programs in 3 new schools -- 1 in Santa Monica (Grant Elementary) and 2 in Los Angeles. We just finished building the school garden at Grant Elementary with the help of parent and student volunteers, and it's a very impressive space!
