Jonathan Lawler, owner and executive director of Brandywine Creek Farms, recently met with Mike Rowe, host of Returning the Favor on Facebook Watch, to show him the wonderful impact his farm is having on the Indianapolis area!
Returning the Favor is a weekly celebration of an outstanding human. Hosted by Mike Rowe, the show is the ultimate dose of inspiration coupled with humor and surprise. In each episode, Mike Rowe honors one individual - many of which are nominated by the Facebook community - to tell their story and chronicle the set-up of their surprise reward (with all the funny and dramatic ups and downs) building up to an exciting reveal of the reward.
In Jonathan's episode ("The Farmer Feeding the City"), Mike and the team are in Indiana to meet “the Punk Rock Farmer” Jonathan Lawler, a produce farmer making incredible sacrifices to ensure hungry people in downtown Indianapolis have access to food.
Jonathan's episode of Returning the Favor will premiere on Facebook Watch at 9:00 PM on Monday, February 24th.
On Friday, February 21st, Heritage Christian School will host a food drive during the JV and Varsity basketball games against Brebeuf Jesuit Prep. The NON-PERISHABLE* food drive will take place from 5:30-8:30 PM and all food will be donated to the Healthy Harvest Market, a not for profit store owned by Jonathan Lawler.
*NON PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS can be canned soups, fruits, vegetables, sauces, pasta, peanut butter, jelly, juices, beans, rice.
