The 6th annual Second Harvest Food Bank’s “Harvest at Home” fundraising event was held at the Garden District residence of Sara and Paul Costello. On this beautiful spring evening, guests mingled both inside and out while sipping wine and enjoying delectable dishes prepared by 2015 “Harvest at Home” featured chef Rebecca Wilcomb, Chef de Cuisine at Herbsaint, and past event chefs Sue Zemanick, Susan Spicer, Tory McPhail and Donald Link. Chef Wilcomb’s turnip-based signature dish and all other nibbles received rave reviews from guests.

Natalie Jayroe, President and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank, chatted with and thanked guests for their role and support in the fight against hunger in the New Orleans community. At the end of the evening, chef Rebecca Wilcomb was presented with a special Second Harvest Food Bank “Harvest at Home” chef’s jacket.

The Molina Trio performed throughout the evening, with Thomas Pol on the upright bass, Jackson Peter Smith on guitar and Xaview Molina on drums. Sara Costello decorated her home with lovely vignettes of fruits and vegetables in reference to the Harvest theme.

Proceeds from the dinner and “at home” endeavors throughout the month of April support Second Harvest’s general operating expenses and programming.

Committee members and spouses in attendance included Patricia Weeks, Sheila and Britton Sanderford, Phillip and Lauren May, Leann and Ted Moses and Susu and Andrew Stall.
