Harvesting at Hatch

It was a wonderful night of fellowship, feasting and celebrating our strong community. Over 450 people attended another Hatch Harvest dinner on Sept. 19 on the Hatch Elementary School grounds. Families, educators and community members dined on wonderful vegetarian dishes created from the bounty of the "Hatch Patch" — the north side organic garden tended by Hatch students and volunteers.

The garden is a year-long effort that pays off for the entire Oak Park community with nearly 100 pounds of vegetables donated to the Oak Park-River Forest Food Pantry in the summer months. And by using the village of Oak Park's composting program, the entire event generated only a third of a garbage bag of landfill waste. The organizers would like to thank all the volunteers and the local restaurants and businesses for their generous donations of food and supplies that made this year's event a huge success:

Falafill, Flying Saucer, Hot Off the Racks Catering, Klay Oven, Maya del Sol, New Rebozo and Trader Joe's. Join us next year to see what makes our tight-knit neighborhood school so special!
