SUGARCANE raw bar grill in Miami regularly partners with Citi Gardens, an organization that has placed growing gardens in 51 schools across Miami-Dade County. The initiative targets neighborhoods designated as “food deserts” due to the lack of access to fresh food.
In November 2015, SUGARCANE raw bar grill hosted the first of several “Citi Gardens Grown with The Education Fund” dinners in our private dining room. This private harvest celebration-themed “garden to table” dining experience featured ingredients from the school gardens that were planted as part of the initiative. A group of students from community schools were on hand to assist Chef Timon with preparations of the dinner for Citi card members.
