Airing live on September 25th, 2014 at 6pm-8pm is this episode of The Queer Life radio show on KBBF 89.1 and streaming through YouTube! This episode we’ll be talking with Karen Gardner and Rachel Gardner from Food for Thought in support of their upcoming Calabash event:
Rachel Gardner, PsyD, is Food For Thought’s Client Services Manager and Deputy Executive Director. Her background is in clinical psychology, and she has focused much of her work on AIDS-related stigma. She has worked for Food For Thought since 2001, and does client intake and support as well as provides executive leadership to the organization. She also coordinates the annual Calabash event.
Food For Thought is Sonoma County’s AIDS Food Bank. For over 25 years, we have provided weekly groceries, vitamins and supplements, and other nutritional services to people with HIV/AIDS in Sonoma County. We currently serve 700 men, women, and children across the county.
Calabash: In its 14th year, Calabash is a celebration of art, gourds, and the garden, and was named Best Fundraiser by readers of the North Bay Bohemian in 2013 and 2014. The event features a silent auction of fine gourd art, tours of Food For Thought’s beautiful organic gardens, fine wine, delicious food, and live music played on hand-made gourd instruments. Tickets are $45 before the event or $50 day-of-event. Please call (707) 887-1647 for tickets or go to www.fftfoodbank.org to buy tickets online.
