Here at Food Republic, we don’t consider ourselves joiners — especially when it comes to the myriad Internet sales groups popping up all over the place. But we may make an exception for One Kings Lane. Why? Alice Waters, chef of Chez Panisse in Berkeley and champion of local and sustainable food is teaming up with One Kings Lane for a special event. If nothing else, it helps support the very important Edible Schoolyard cause.
Starting tomorrow, One Kings Lane offers the chance to attend Chez Panisse’s 40th anniversary by selling the only tickets left for the event. The sale will last for 72 hours and will feature several event packages including invitations to the 40th Anniversary Weekend in Berkeley (August 26-28), as well as private access to Chez Panisse, Edible Schoolyard, and a “Chef For a Day” option.
If that wasn’t enough, Alice Waters is also handpicking her favorite kitchen items for One Kings Lane shoppers. All of the proceeds from the sale will benefit The Edible Schoolyard (ESY) Programs, which provide a one-acre organic garden and a kitchen classroom for urban public school students.
Great eating, great party, and great cause — that’s the kind of online sale we can get behind.
