Menu inspired by celebrity chef Sara Moulton

FORTY FORT, Pa. – Seed to Farmacy, a farm-to-table dining experience featuring fresh food, a celebrity chef, music, farmers’ market and silent auction on April 28, will benefit programs at Geisinger hospitals in northeast Pennsylvania and the Fresh Food Farmacy

This exclusive event from 6 to 11 p.m. at The Room at 900 in Forty Fort will feature food prepared by Epicurean Delight and inspired by celebrity chef Sara Moulton, former food editor of ABC-TV’s "Good Morning America" and current host of the PBS show, "Sara’s Weeknight Meals." 

“Our Geisinger Northeast family invites you to join us for this fun, farm-to-table dining experience that will directly benefit local programs that help local people,” said Anthony Aquilina, D.O., regional president of Geisinger Northeast. “Proceeds from the event and silent auction directly benefit programs at Geisinger Community Medical Center and Geisinger Wyoming Valley, as well as the Fresh Food Farmacy program in Scranton.”

Fresh Food Farmacy offers those with chronic illnesses and who suffer from food insecurity to be “prescribed” fresh produce and healthier food options from food banks. Nutritionists and social workers coach the patients to help manage diets and improve their general health. 

“For those using the program in central Pennsylvania, patients are enjoying some amazing results – some losing quite a few pounds and some lowering their A1C diabetes levels by nearly a half,” Dr. Aquilina said.  

Many sponsorship opportunities are available, and event tickets are $125 per person.

About Sara Moulton, celebrity chef
Sara Moulton kicked off her seventh season as host of public television's Sara's Weeknight Meals in the fall of 2017. It is the latest milestone in a storied career that stretches back more than 40 years. A protégée of Julia Child, Sara was the founder of the New York Women's Culinary Alliance, executive chef of Gourmet magazine, food editor of ABC-TV's "Good Morning America," and the host of several well-loved shows on the Food Network during that channel's first decade. A teacher at heart, Sara's mission has remained the same for decades: to help the home cook land dinner on the table.

Following her graduation from the Culinary Institute of American in 1977, Sara spent seven years as a restaurant chef in Boston and New York. In the early 1980s, she shifted into recipe testing and development. It was while working as an instructor at Peter Kump's New York Cooking School (now known as the Institute of Culinary Education) that Sara discovered her love of teaching. In 1984, Sara took a job in the test kitchen at Gourmet magazine. Four years later, she became chef of Gourmet's executive dining room, a position she held until the magazine was closed in 2009.

Sara's TV career began in 1979 when she was hired to work behind the scenes on public television's "Julia Child & More Company." Her friendship with Julia eventually led to Sara's gig at "Good Morning America," where what started as another behind-the-scenes position developed in 1997 into on-camera work. By then Sara had begun hosting "Cooking Live," a live call-in show, for the Food Network. During the next 10 years, she'd host several other shows for them, totaling more than 1,500 episodes. 

Sara is the author of several cookbooks, including Sara Moulton Cooks at Home (2002), Sara's Secrets for Weeknight Meals (2005), Sara Moulton's Everyday Family Dinners (2010) and Sara Moulton’s Home Cooking 101: How to Make Everything Taste Better (2016).

Since August of 2012, Sara has been writing a weekly column for the Associated Press, called “KitchenWise.” She also writes a monthly column for the Washington Post, called “Sunday Supper,” and does weekly radio segments on Milk Street radio with Christopher Kimball.
