Here at Pastoral we have a strong commitment to helping out our communities. Gift Certificates, catering, and the time and knowledge of our staff are things we gladly give. During this time of anguish and heartache for the nation of Haiti and her people a lot of people in the food community are coming together to help in whatever way they can.
There is a fundraiser on Thursday January 21 from 6-9pm at English Bar in River North which includes a silent auction. Many of our wholesale customers (Nightwood, Avec, Pulican and many others) are a part of the list of Chicago restaurants reaching out. We will also be participating in the silent auction and encourage everyone to do what they can to help.
Please check out the website Helping in the Wake of the Quake and the facebook link for more information and a complete list of restaurants participating. If you can't make the event, there is a link to donate directly on their website. Thank you for your generosity.
-Ken, Greg and the entire Pastoral staff
