Local restaurants have announced plans to aid a local farm family whose barn was destroyed by fire last week.
Promised Land Farm in Corfu lost a building, farm equipment, freezers full of food, and more, with damage estimated at $200,000 by fire officials. Trattoria Aroma, Shango Bistro and Bistro Europa, both customers and supporters of farmers Dan and Jane Oles and their family, have invited their customers to help the Oles.
Trattoria Aroma is holding a dinner at the farm on Oct. 20, with all proceeds going to the family. It’s a $150 seat, though you can donate more. Vans leave from Trattoria Aroma locations at 2 p.m. Reservations through aromafarmdinners.com.
Shango Bistro is hosting a benefit at 6 p.m. Oct. 11. It’s $25 for hors d’oeuvres, Flying Bison draft beer and live music.
At Bistro Europa, 50 percent of Fri. and Sat. food profits will be donated to Promised Land Farm.
