Cherished regional food and beverage festival, The Brewer’s Plate, returns on March 13 to the Kimmel Center. The annual event is committed to the mantra “buy fresh, buy local” and brings together the region’s outstanding chefs, farmers, food artisans, brewers, distillers and winemakers for one night to benefit nonprofit organization, Fair Food.

Fair Food was founded in 2000 by Philadelphia entrepreneur Judy Wicks, who wished to spread the locally-sourced model of her restaurant White Dog Café to other businesses in the region. As an organization, Fair Food is “dedicated to bringing locally-grown food to the marketplace” and strives to promote “a humane, sustainable agriculture system” for the Philly area.
