The event will feature homemade soups and bread, live entertainment from Tater Patch and valuable information to help you get your spring gardens growing, all while raising money to help end hunger in Delaware.

The event will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on March 4, with a snow date of March 11. The $25 entrance fee includes dinner and entertainment.

Reservations for the event are required by Thursday, Feb. 25, and can be made by contacting Kim Kostes of the Food Bank of Delaware at (302) 444-8074 or [kkostes@fbd.org]. Online registration is available at the Food Bank of Delaware Web site.

Those who attend are encouraged to bring a bag of nonperishables to help the Food Bank meet the increased demand for food assistance.

The Think Spring Fling is supported by UD's Garden for the Community, which is a cooperative partnership between the University of Delaware College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR), the CANR Ag College Council, Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners and the Food Bank of Delaware.

The Garden for the Community project uses a portion of UD's 350-acre agro-ecology teaching complex to raise fresh produce to benefit the Food Bank of Delaware. In 2009, over three tons of fresh produce were donated.
