Baro New World Cantina Fundraiser

Grand Opening to fight hunger and benefit Community Plates

Baro's Tamale Veracruz

Baro’ will be hosting its Grand Opening celebration in collaboration with a benefit for Community Plates, a Connecticut based food rescue organization. The exciting evening will be held at Baro’ Restaurant — a spirited contemporary Latin Cuisine hot spot in town and will feature signature cocktails, delicious Latin foods, a silent auction and more — as all proceeds will benefit ‘the fight against food insecurity in Connecticut.’

“Our commitment to local farmers and artisans touches only one aspect of food security in America,” said Owner Richard Reyes. “By partnering with Community Plates we are able to have an impact on both ends of the food cycle, ensuring local produce and ingredients find their way to those who need it most. It is a win-win not only for the consumer, but for the farmer and the food insecure community in CT as well.”

Baro’ offers both indoor and seasonally outdoor dining, drinks, foods, music and ambience, sure to transport guests into a new world. This ‘casual yet sleek, cozy yet spacious, upbeat and inviting’ restaurant features the finest in Latin Cuisine, tapas, handcrafted drinks, Spanish wines, craft cocktails and artisanal spirits.

Community Plates is an organization committed to ending food insecurity in America — recognizing the problem as a matter of logistics, as opposed to a lack of food. The organization has established a volunteer-driven technology fueled method of transporting surplus food to those in need. Their simple process coordinates food donors (grocery stores, restaurants, bakeries, food service establishments) with food runners (individuals who pick up and deliver donations) to receiving agencies (soup kitchens and pantries). 

Founded in 2011, more than 700 volunteers have rescued food, equaling more than two million meals in this Fairfield County Headquartered organization.

Come one, come all and enjoy this win-win evening event: Wednesday, February 19th from 5-9pm.

Tickets: $40 per person. includes admission to this private event, one signature drink, one complimentary drink, tapas, tacos and more. By supporting this event, ‘guests are helping make a difference in providing food to CT residents in need by raising vital funds for Community Plates.’
