Couloir Restaurant has been a proud member of 1% for the Planet for a few years now, and this year the local non-profit supported by these funds is Hole Food Rescue (HFR). Founded by JHMR employee Ali Dunford, Hole Food Rescue has in just two years changed the way the Jackson Hole community looks at food and food waste.
Ali and Jeske Grave are the two staff members who run a team of over 50 volunteers to help divert food waste (20,000 pounds a month on average), stock the Jackson Hole Food Cupboard and now are embarking on a research study to help identity food needs, food waste and solutions for our community.
To raise awareness about what HFR is doing they are throwing a party this Thursday at the Center for the Arts. This event will kick off at 6pm with some light bites from JHMR Executive Chef Wes Hamilton using rescued food, tastings from local spirit producers and at 8pm the Jackson Premiere of “Just Eat It”, a documentary about food waste in America. All the proceeds from the $10 suggested donation will go to support HFR’s mission to end food insecurity in Jackson Hole and divert food waste from our local landfill. There are lots of great raffle prizes too, the raffle will take place at 7 pm, and includes a 5 day ski pass from JHMR, dinner for two at Couloir, massages, gift cards and more.
Come support a truly great grassroots organization, and learn more about what you can do to help!
