The Field & Main Community Commitment Initiative (CCI)
CCI represents our restaurant's commitment to support the local community in Marshall and areas nearby in Middleburg, Warren and Fauquier County, Virginia. At Field & Main, we focus on initatives that develop and support sustainability and promote health and well-being in our region. Field & Main believes that it can leverage its resources and relationships for the benefit of the community. All of those who dine at Field & Main restaurant are in effect contributing to make a broader impact on our region through efforts such as these:
Field & Main Seedlings Program
Field & Main Restaurant fosters and promotes an appreciation for local food production. We introduce students from Marshall VA area schools to how to source ingredients, to prepare food and to serve meals for family and friends. Students work with the Field & Main culinary team to devise a menu, cost it out, source and process the ingredients, and then prepare, serve and clean up the meal. All the proceeds from this food appreciation program are donated to the school to support their educational missions.
For schools interested in participating in the Field & Main Seedlings program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fauquier Food Bank & Truck
Field & Main Local Charity Affiliation
Each evening, the Field & Main dining staff designates a menu item from which we donate $1 from every order to support the Fauquier Food Bank's Food Truck. The menu item is usually great for sharing. When people visit our fine dining restaurant near Washington DC in Marshall VA, we invite parties to purchase this item with their meal to share at the table. By doing so, patrons contribute to the subsistence of the needy in our broader community.
The Fauquier Food Bank and Thrift Store in Warrenton VA
The proceeds from sales at this thrift store support the The Fauquier Food Bank and all of its operations. Every $1 in donations or profit can purchase $4 worth of food to feed people in our area who are food insecure. About 40 to 50 families are served meals every day, Monday through Friday. Twice a month, families visit and shop with a volunteer's assistance to fill their shopping carts. An assortment of meat, dairy, produce, deli, bakery, and dry grocery items are available for families throughout the month.
With these fresh ingredients, families receive basic recipes to help prepare, eat, store and preserve food that they may never have tried before. Expanding its mission, the Fauquier Food Bank is working to expand to the outer areas of the Fauquier County county that includes Marshall, Orlean, Hume, Remington, and other points further from the county seat.
