Who doesn’t love a drive-in movie and giving back to a great cause? Grab your car keys, pick up a few friends, and enjoy a chef-driven dinner at the drive-in, all while supporting Urban Harvest.
The Sunday Supper fall fundraising event takes place Sunday, November 8, 2020, featuring a drive-in movie with a coursed dinner designed and prepared by local chefs with ingredients sourced from the Urban Harvest Farmers Market. The socially distanced event will take place at the NEW East End Moonstruck Drive-In Cinema, where guests will enjoy viewing The Biggest Little Farm from the comfort of their own cars. The fundraiser will feature dinner for four created by Chefs Chris Shepherd & Nick Fine of UB Hospitality, Chef Austin Waiter of Tony’s, Chefs Becca & Jason Kerr of Little Kitchen HTX, and Chef Elaine Won of Dumpling Haus.
The drive-in event will follow a similar format as previous Sunday Supper events, utilizing the region’s best produce and artisanal food producers. Chris Shepherd’s team at UB Hospitality will be making taquitos with Tatemó’s handmade corn tortillas. Dumpling Haus will be serving their legendary dumplings that have made them a fixture at the weekly Urban Harvest Farmers Market. Austin Waiter of Tony’s will be serving grits made from Harvest Grain Mills organic rice, grown in Winnie. The treats for the movie will be popcorn made by Little Kitchen HTX and their Shenanigans, an addictive and spicy riff on trail mix.
“We are thrilled to host a safe and fun version of our Sunday Supper event,” said Janna Roberson, Executive Director of Urban Harvest. “We are lucky to be able to collaborate with some of Houston’s best chefs and local farms to offer moviegoers a unique and enjoyable outdoor experience.”
The Drive-In Sunday Supper event will start at 5pm with drive-thru food pickup on site, then guests will choose their parking spot for the 6:30pm movie screening. The large footprint will allow supporters a few different ways to enjoy the event while supporting Urban Harvest. Tickets are $300 per car and include food for four, water, and the movie screening. There are also options for premier lounge seating for six ($1,500) or eight ($3,000) that includes outdoor, socially distanced premier lounge–style seating with exclusive snacks, fun swag bags, and mocktails.
