June Farm + Chef Takeaway Dinner Series
Our June Farm + Chef Takeaway features Willow City Farm pork slow roasted by Chef Denise in
a caja china, or "roasting box". (Pronounced Ka-ha Chee-na).
The method of slow roasting the pig in the hot box has been around for centuries in many
cultures, and is becoming extremely popular in the US among chefs working with local farmers.
This month, we're paying homage to the outdoor barbecue, and are offering everything you
need youmake your dinner for 4 or dinner for 40 a success! Each item can be purchased
individually, so you can mix and match to feed your own crowd. Willow City Farm has a butcher date set so that we'll also have fresh (never frozen) JUST cut steaks ready for you to put on the grill!
Our charity this month, in honor of Father's day, will be the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. As many of your know, Tara lost her father when he took his own life in 2010, so this charity is special for her. 10% of all sales will be donated directly to the charity.

As many of you know, Tara lost her father when he took his own life in 2010, so this charity is near and dear to us. 10% of all sales will be donated directly to our local AFSP chapter.
The Central Illinois Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
AFSP was founded in 1987 by several people who had lost loved ones to suicide. These surviving family members joined with scientists to create the nationwide not-for-profit devoted to supporting suicide-related research and prevention initiatives.
The organization's main constituents are scientists, survivors of suicide loss, people who live with mental illness and their families. AFSP has 85 local chapters nationwide that drive the organization's outreach, advocacy and fundraising efforts. They work closely with organizations that provide crisis counseling, including the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
AFSP funds several programs to reduce stigma and help the public better understand suicide.
