This year, 10 percent of funds raised at the REAL.GOOD.PARTY! will be committed to the endowment with 90 percent supporting the Cafe operating fund. These additional funds are needed for operation since F.A.R.M. Cafe provides approximately 15 percent of meals each day to persons experiencing food and economic insecurity. This means that in 2015, F.A.R.M. Cafe served over 18,900 total meals of which over 2,900 meals were exchanged or given to persons experiencing food insecurity.

The 3rd Annual REAL.GOOD.PARTY! on March 18 features live music by local band Soul Benefactor, dancing, heavy hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and the incredible silent auction. Tickets to this year’s event are available for a suggested donation of $25-35 per person. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Cafe, on-line at realgoodparty.eventbrite.com, or at the door.

The 2016 REAL.GOOD.PARTY! is sponsored by Mast General Store, Life Store, Meadowbrook Inn and Suites, Enterline & Russel Builders as well as other local businesses that will be announced at the event. Many local and regional businesses and individuals are also supporting the event through providing donations to silent auction. This year the auction will feature over 50 items and packages including a hot air balloon ride, vacation packages, antiques, fine dining certificates, local services, and much more. Everyone can find something to bid on at this year’s auction.

F.A.R.M. (Feed All Regardless of Means) Cafe, located at 617 West King Street in Boone, is open Monday through Friday from 11 AM-2 PM featuring a diverse daily selection made with fresh ingredients from local sources, as possible. Guests contribute a suggested donation or pay-it-forward with a donation beyond the suggested amount, while others donate what they can or volunteer an hour of their time in exchange for a meal.
