Foraged Feast will benefit hospital’s culinary medicine program

By Rob Alway, Editor-in-Chief.

SCOTTVILLE — The fifth annual Foraged Feast, sponsored by the Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital Foundation, will be held Saturday, Feb. 1 from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the Scottville Optimist Center. The fundraising event is a casual affair that celebrates the outdoors that features a wild game menu, craft beer, an auction, raffle, and a good time.

“One of the aspects that sets this event apart from others is the food,” said Kaley Petersen, director of foundation, community services, and volunteers. “Our hospital catering team does an incredible job conceiving, cooking, and serving a wild game menu. There is always some staple comfort food items but also some exotic choices for people to try.

“We start the event with a casual ‘beer hour’, serve appetizers, sell gun raffle tickets and table raffle tickets. Each year Ludington Beverage has stepped up as our title sponsor for the event. We strive to offer only high quality and unique raffle and auction items at the event.”

Proceeds from this year’s event will go towards the Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital Culinary Medicine Program beginning summer of 2020.  Culinary medicine is an evidence-based field of medicine aimed at improving a patient’s health by blending nutrition and cooking knowledge with the science of medicine.

Tickets start at $50 each and can be purchased here.
