Oct. 8 charity dinner already sold out. Project aims to help cancer patients in the Fox Valley.

Fox Valley Food for Health project, a new non-profit serving the greater Tri-Cities area, is announcing their launch in 2012, with a charity dinner to be held Oct. 8 at Tavolino, a newly opened Italian restaurant in Geneva.

FVFFH is takinga new approach to serving the community by linking high school student volunteers to cancer patients and their families.

Tavolino, a new restaurant in Geneva, will be hosting the dinner at their restaurant at 305 W. State St. in Geneva, to support the FVFFH project. The dinner will start at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 8, followed by a silent auction. Tavolino reports that support for the project has been unbelievable and that tickets for the event were sold out within 48 hours, as people look forward to an evening of food, friendship and support to those in need.

"Tavolino’s generous support of this program is a classic example of businessesworking to make a difference in Geneva, Batavia and St. Charles," said Mary Fremgen, one of the organizers.

If you are not able to attend this event, the FVFFHP is hosting an open house for information andvolunteer opportunities from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Oct. 18, at Roquette America Inc.

Fox Valley Food for Health is a new program that gives high school students an opportunity to learn cooking and food-growing skills, while providing a vital service to those in need. Qualified chef mentors will teach high school students to grow and cook nutritious meals, which will in turn be delivered free of charge to cancer patients and their families. With more than 10,000 identified cancer patients in Kane County over the last five years, and malnutrition identified as a major challenge to those going through chemotherapy and radiation, this effort is vital to the well-being of our county’s families. Modeled after a highly successful program in Northern California, this project expects to make a major impact in the lives of both Kane County students, and cancer patients and their families.
