Pig Out with PNA Village

Pig Out to Root Out Hunger

Tomorrow (Wednesday, September 27) is the PNA’s “Pig Out to Root Out Hunger”!

PNA Village staff will be at the 74th Street Alehouse (7401 Greenwood Ave N) for lunch at 11:15 AM tomorrow, and we’d love for Village members and volunteers to join us!

Please let us know if you’ll be there so we can save you a spot—you may call us at 206.789.1217 or  email village@phinneycenter.org .

Hope to see you Wednesday!


What is Pig Out to Root Out Hunger? Pig Out is a neighborhood fundraising event for the PNA’s Hot Meal Program. Restaurants, pubs, and cafes in Phinney/Greenwood donate 15% of proceeds from September 27 to help fund three free meals every week—two dinners and a lunch—at the Greenwood Senior Center and St. John United Lutheran Church. The program serves over 16,000 meals a year to mostly low-income, disabled, and elderly neighborhood residents. Last year participating restaurants raised over $6,000 for the Hot Meal Program.

Breakfast, lunch, coffee break, happy hour, dinner and dessert! There’s a place for ’em all… you can pig out all day!

Cheese, Goats, and Kids at the Phinney Farmer’s Market

By Richard Gillett

Cheese, Goats and Kids!

This goat farm is a family enterprise: Collin Medeiros, his wife Rebecca, and four children staffed the booth on opening day!

Attendance at the June 3 opening of the Phinney Farmer’s Market broke records in both revenue for the farmers ($23,729) and attendance (1975 people)!  Among the new vendors this year is Burton Hill Farms, a Grade A certified goat dairy farm on Vashon Island. The farm has 50 goats; 14 are currently milking.

Goat cheese is a specialty at Burton Hill, with naturally aged Feta Cheese and also a special blue cheese. But there’s also goat milk for lactose intolerant people, goat soap, and other products. Last Friday (June 10) was popular at the booth—I bought the last 4 oz. block of Feta fairly early on in the session (Market hours: 3:30-7:30).

Collin Medeiros told me that his 13 year old son George would be milking goats that evening. His five-year old, Peter, has a favorite goat—Mississippi.

So it seems that kids go together with kids!
