Sallade put together a basket drawing fund raiser for the Foundation during the WVAND Conference and Expo in Morgantown, W.Va., on April 5-6, 2018. “Our members look forward to this event every year. Our conference was centered around eating local and supporting local farms, so naturally, I wanted our Foundation fundraiser to do the same,” she said.
Most of the prize baskets were filled with donated items from generous local businesses. One in particular, a “Farm to Table” basket was filled with local food items from West Virginia such as honey, roasted coffee, herb salt blends, maple syrup, ramp salsa and apple butter and assortments from a local farmers market association. The West Virginia University and Marshall University Student Associations also donated baskets.
