Buy Boone Lunch at F.A.R.M. Cafe on Friday Sponsored by Gary Moss Jr. of Ameriprise Financial and Fuschia Moss Floral Design

F.A.R.M. Cafe, Boone’s donate-what-you-can community cafe, welcomes local business couple Gary and Fuschia Moss as sponsors for this Friday’s ‘Buy Boone Lunch’ program. On Friday November 9, between 11-2, Fuschia, Gary and members of their teams will be serving in the various volunteer roles and welcoming the community to join them in supporting F.A.R.M. Cafe. As a ‘Buy Boone Lunch’ sponsor the Moss’s have committed a donation to cover the basic cost of Friday’s lunch. F.A.R.M. Cafe staff are planning a delicious ‘Fish Friday’ menu of cornmeal encrusted trout, slaw, hushpuppies, green beans, and other great food.

Gary Moss Jr., local Ameriprise Financial Advisor, is very engaged in the community through his involvement with the Boone Chamber of Commerce, Boone Sunrise Rotary and many other organizations. Fuschia is the founder of Fuschia Moss Floral Design which creates beautiful floral arrangements for many weddings and local events. They are parents of three children and love being a part of the High Country community. ‘We’re so grateful that Fuschia, Gary, and their teams are a part of the F.A.R.M. Café community and are participating in the ‘Buy Boone Lunch’ program, said Tommy Brown, Volunteer Coordinator at F.A.R.M. Café. ‘Buy Boone Lunch is a great way for businesses and others to experience the Cafe through volunteering and really learn what F.A.R.M. Cafe is all about – bringing the whole community together and making sure everyone is fed really good food.”

The monthly ‘Buy Boone Lunch’ days are similar to regular days at F.A.R.M. Cafe where guests can donate what they are able for a great lunch. With Gary, Fuschia and their businesses covering the basic costs of the meal on Friday November 9 through a generous donation, each and every additional donation will be utilized by the cafe in its mission to fight food insecurity in the High Country.

Many local businesses and organizations have participated in the ‘Buy Boone Lunch’ program at F.A.R.M. Cafe. This year’s previous sponsors include Mast General Store, Boone Drug Inc., 4 Forty Four Construction, Combs, Tenant & Carpenter, Best Cellar & Inn at Ragged Garden, Appalachain Mountain Brewery, Harvest House Church/New Life Campus Ministry, ASU Diversity Scholars, and ECRS. ‘It’s great having these businesses and organizations come and be a visible part of the community here at the Cafe,’ said Renee Boughman, founder and executive chef at F.A.R.M. “It is a win-win for the Cafe and for the business, and everyone, and we really mean everyone, gets a great meal.”
