---- — Home Health & Hospice Care, which serves 25 communities in Southern New Hampshire, will benefit from a Farm to Fork Field Dinner at the Bedford Village Inn on Aug. 22.

Locally sourced, New England food will be the star attraction as guests sit down together at long farm tables outdoors for a summer celebration to benefit the Community Hospice House.

Entertainment will be provided during cocktail hour by Kathy, Dan and Harry, whose music is in the American folk tradition, with songs by Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Bill Staines.

Noted New Hampshire artist Monique Sakellarios will be on site putting the finishing touches to a special painting to be auctioned at the conclusion of the event.

Inn executive chef Benjamin Knack, featured on Season 7 of “Hell’s Kitchen,” has chosen a menu that reflects the bounty of a New England summer and is utilizing locally sourced produce and meat. Each course will be paired with an appropriate wine. Civic leader and philanthropist Harry Shepler will end the evening as auctioneer of a collection of fine wine.

The Community Hospice House is owned and operated by Home Health & Hospice Care, a 130-year-old nonprofit Visiting Nurse Association and hospice.

The Farm to Fork Field Dinner raises funds to care for uninsured patients at the Community Hospice House. For additional information and to make reservations, call 689-2812.
