PinPoint Restaurant hosted the first of its new series Sunday Suppers this past week, showcasing produce from local farm Wholesome Greens.
 
The dinners, chef Dean Neff said, are designed to bring PinPoint’s guests closer to community farmers as well as raise money for local charities.
 
A portion of the proceeds from this month’s Sunday Suppers will benefit the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina at Wilmington.
 
“Food brings people together and this is a great way to gather a group of people together to share a meal and raise both money and awareness of local farmers and charitable organizations,” said Neff.
 
Neff said that he has Joe Choi and Nicholl Gleason of Wholesome Greens to thank for helping him make many of the connections with local farmers and fishermen that he has come to rely upon for sourcing ingredients.
 
“They were the first farmers we met and I would say 90 percent of our connections came from them,” Neff said. “They have been really supportive and really helpful.”
 
This past Sunday’s dinner offered guests the opportunity to dine with Choi and Gleason as well as Beth Gaglione, Wilmington branch director of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina.
 
“I am quite taken with how engaged Dean and Lydia (Lydia Clopton, PinPoint’s pastry chef) have become in our community in such a short period of time,” Beth Gaglione said. “The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina is honored to be chosen as the initial beneficiary of the Sunday Supper at PinPoint and we look forward to a long history of working with them to help people who struggle with hunger.”
 
The Sunday Supper three-course menu is $25 per person and $10 for kids 3-12. There is also special limited seating at 6:30 p.m., when guests can come and enjoy a family-style meal, seated at a long table with the farmer and a representative of the charity.
