The Town of Brookline, Massachusetts is excited to announce that its annual Brookline Food Festival and Coolidge Corner Arts Festival will be held on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at The Devotion School (345 Harvard Street) in Coolidge Corner, rain or shine! In addition to a wonderful assortment of restaurants being present at the Festival, more than eighty artists will display and sell their works.
At the event, which is open to the public, restaurants and artists will exhibit side by side. Festival attendees will be able to purchase “tasting tickets” at a central location from Food Pantry volunteers for $2 each, with each ticket being good for one small portion from any of the restaurants’ booths. Each restaurant will have its own area and serve small tasting portions (250 suggested). Restaurants will be donating all their food, utensils, serving containers, tables, and tents.
Jim Margolis, manager of The Brookline Food Pantry said, “We are incredibly grateful to be the beneficiary of The Brookline Food Festival and Coolidge Corner Arts Festival for the fifth year. Our need for support is greater now than ever before. Over the past few years, with the down economy, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of individuals and families in need of food assistance. The financial support we receive from the Brookline Food Festival helps us ensure that Brookline residents have food in their homes and don’t go hungry.”  In 2011, the event successfully raised $6,800 for the Brookline Food Pantry.
Restaurants that have already signed up to participate in the 2012 Festival include:
The Fireplace, Goddard House, Marriott Courtyard Bistro, Olea Café, Paris Creperie, Party Favors, and Zaftigs.
