ABOUT THE HARVEST BANQUET
The Harvest Banquet fundraiser is inspired by the Annual Foraged Banquet, which occurs in the spring at Gallery 263. This year’s Harvest Banquet will feature local autumnal flavors and a true foraged delicacy—wild mushrooms collected by Gallery co-founder and foraging expert David Craft.
Foraged Banquets at Gallery 263 are completely home-cooked and served in true grassroots spirit; our board, staff, interns, friends, and neighbors transform the gallery into a dining room for the night, and lend a hand to our guest chef. We work together to bring you fresh, delicious, and beautiful dishes, and we love sharing the stories and inspiration behind your meal with you.
Not only is this evening a delicious feast, but it also offers a way to contribute to Gallery 263 and its special role in the Cambridge arts community. Proceeds from this event go toward continued programming at Gallery 263. As a small nonprofit organization, we rely on your help to continue our mission. We hope that you will support Gallery 263 and join us at this cozy, personalized, and welcoming event!
If you’re unable to attend the event and would like to support Gallery 263 with a financial contribution, we would graciously appreciate any amount you are able to donate. Donations may be made here.
We would also like to extend a special thank you to Whole Foods for donating ingredients for this meal!
