Good food, good drink and good music will be served up for a good cause in Stratford Sunday at Monforte Dairy’s annual Hootenanny.

The event, hosted by cheesemaker Ruth Klahsen as a way of thanking her customers, will also raise money for the Local Community Food Centre’s Share the Health fund to purchase food from local, sustainable family farms for community meals, cooking programs and other events.

The Hootenanny is the last of five Share the Health events held across Ontario this summer to raise money for programs that promote the health of low-income or food-insecure community members, with the help of local chefs, farmers and artisans.

It will run from 4-9 p.m. Sunday at Monforte Dairy at 49 Griffith Rd.

Admission is $10 at the gate (free for Monforte Dairy subscribers and children under 10), and tickets are also available at the Local Community Food Centre (612 Erie St.) or online at www.thelocalcfc.org.

Everyone is welcome.

Food and beverage tickets are $5 each for things like pork tacos by the Local Community Food Centre, Ethiopian chicken and vegetable stews by the Perth-Huron Multicultural Association, roasted goat by Monforte on Wellington, noodles by the Wicked Pickle food trailer, as well as Creemore Beer and Chateau des Charmes wine.

There will also be chips and salsa from Neal Brothers Foods, fresh vegetables from Loco Fields, and hot, cold and sparkling apple cider and Kiju organic juices.

Musical performers for the event include Brad McGoey and his Band, and Graham & Dan.
