2021 CHARITABLE PROJECT TO REDUCE LOCAL CHILDHOOD HUNGER
ART Feeding Families
SUNFLOWER FIELD EVENT RAISES MORE THAN $32,000 TO FEED LOCAL FAMILIES IN NEED
The Earl Farm in Howell was the venue for LAYERS, a plein air solo art exhibit that raised more than $32,000 to help put healthy protein on the tables of Livingston County families.
The sold-out community fundraiser, attended by 150 people on July 31, was a collaboration between The Earl Farm Foundation, and artist Susan Pominville, who founded ART Feeding Families to use her talents to help reduce local childhood hunger.
The 45 acres of sunflowers were a golden backdrop for LAYERS, Pominville’s 8’ by 4’ oil painting comprised of 100 individual canvases. The title comes from the painting’s many layers of color, one built upon the other. In designing the painting as a mosaic, the message was two-fold: “I wanted to convey the importance of us as unique individuals, and also recognize the bond and connection among us all.”
All proceeds from art sales, tickets, and additional donations go to benefit the nonprofit Earl Farm Foundation, whose sole purpose is to help families in need.
There are several ways to help. Tax-deductible donations may be made online at EARLFARM.COM.

2022 CHARITABLE PROJECT TO REDUCE HUNGER IN UKRAINE
ART Feeding Families
ART Feeds Ukraine
On February 24, 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine, and the devastation has been heart-wrenching.
As an artist, I was moved to help, and I hope my art will inspire others.
The sunflower, Ukraine's national flower, has long symbolized pride and resilience. Worldwide, it now represents solidarity with the Ukrainian people.
To raise funds to feed Ukrainian families, I’m doing it the best way I can—offering prints of my original sunflower oil painting—as well as select pieces of its 100 individual sections, for sale—with 100% of the proceeds going to World Central Kitchen, the first to respond and provide hot meals after disasters.
Founded by renowned chef José Andrés, WCK is on the ground in Ukraine today. Within hours of the first attack, WCK set up at eight border crossings for families fleeing their home, some who hadn’t had a meal in days. For those who don’t have the means to leave, WCK supports local restaurants providing free food.
