Food Festival In A Box

Aug 23, 2020 - 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Dear Friends,

It is with deep regret that, in light of the current state of the world, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Hazon Michigan Jewish Food Festival.

We had been pursuing every possible way to offer a healthy and safe in-person experience to our community and partners, for whom this celebration is a highlight each year.  What happens with Hazon through the Food Festival, the Seal of Sustainability, and our educational, spiritual, justice, and community programs is reflective of Hazon’s mission to create a more sustainable world for all.

Though we won’t join together at the Food Festival this year, we are no less on this journey together. In that light, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our Food Festival In A Box!

In collaboration with your favorite vendors and community organizations from previous Food Festivals, we have procured specialty food items, created meaningful justice opportunities that you can do remotely, and curated a delicious and interactive Food Festival experience that you can take home with you. Everything you love about the Food Festival, now in a box! We know this isn’t the same as being together at Eastern Market, but we’re confident that this will provide just the right kind of taste of what makes the Food Festival so special. The Food Festival has grown to become Metro Detroit’s largest annual Jewish gathering – a way to connect, to learn, to experience, and to grow as a community. We’re so excited that we’ll be able to keep building that momentum this year, even in a new and adapted form. Keep your eyes peeled as we release more information in the coming weeks, including featured vendors and community organizations, as well as links to register for your Box.

If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor for this year’s Food Festival In A Box, or have any questions about this program, please contact Marla Schloss at marla.schloss@hazon.org.
