Kennett Square — The Mushroom Festival was awarded nearly $ 63,000 to 28 local non-profit organizations and community organizations at last week’s annual grant reception, the Mushroom Festival Board announced.
The Mushroom Festival is a weekend event, but its influence lasts all year round. Every year, the Mushroom Festival provides revenue for the event to local charities and nonprofits. Over the last two decades, the Mushroom Festival has donated more than $ 1 million to local organizations for books, playsets, food, transportation, healthcare services and more.
Gailferant of Buona Foods, Mushroom Festival Coordinator, thus described the grant program. “Kennett Square is the world’s mushroom capital, primarily with the support of the community. This is how the mushroom farming community says thank you.”
