“Northeast FLAVOR to sponsor Fair Tide”

Kittery, Maine—November 2, 2012—On Wednesday, November 7th at 5:30 pm, Fair Tide will announce Northeast Flavor as Thrift Store Sponsor at an Open House Wine and Cheese Social at its thrift store at 15 State Street in Kittery. 

Featuring hors d’oeuvres prepared by Northeast Flavor’s Editor-in Chief, Jean Kerr, the event is open to the public. 

As the Northeast’s only dedicated food and wine magazine, Northeast FLAVOR is not just about eating new food. It is about finding out where your food comes from, its cultural history, and its connection to the community, the planet and our future.

“As a company and individuals, we donate time and money to local food and homeless charities,” said Northeast Flavor’s Brenda Gaudet. “The Northeast is not just what we write about—it’s the place we call home, so we are thrilled to support Fair Tide.”

In addition to announcing Northeast FLAVOR as sponsor for November and December, the event will also bring together outgoing business sponsor, Five O’Clock Fox Antiques, and several realtors from Fair Tide’s One Warm Night Campaign.

“It’s a nice opportunity to meet some of the people and businesses who have stepped up to support our mission to end homelessness,” said Fair Tide’s Barbara McGaughey. “It’s very casual and always fun.”

As part of its sponsorship, Kerr will provide a class on cooking techniques to residents within Fair Tide’s transitional housing program.

“We are so thrilled to have Jean help our residents develop their cooking skills,” added McGaughey. “This is just one example of what we do as an agency to help program participants develop necessary life skills to enhance and improve their lives.”

Fair Tide’s Open House Wine and Cheese Social will take place at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, November 7th at The Fair Tide Thrift Store at 15 State Road in Kittery. 

Founded in 1998, Fair Tide is a prevention program that combines safe, affordable housing with comprehensive supportive services to keep people safe as they gain the necessary skills to obtain and maintain permanent housing. Proceeds from the Thrift Store, open from 10am to 5pm Monday through Saturday, directly support the Fair Tide program.
