A group that aims to nurture the East End's food growers, fishing industry and vineyards has an event planned for Saturday.

The Amagansett Food Institute's clambake is described as "a fundraising evening with lobsters, clams, tuna, swordfish, chicken . . . This will be a smaller, more intimate evening where we will discuss at length our plans for the future."

It takes place from 7-10 p.m. at 4 Atlantic Ave. in Amagansett. The cost is on a sliding scale, from $150-$275.

The Sag Harbor Express has an extensive report on the group and its goals.

The Food Institute's mission is "to bring you closer to your farmers, your fishermen, your vintners and the bounty of the East End."

A few caveats, from the group's website: the clambake is not kid-friendly, not dog-friendly, and not wheelchair accessible. And it's non-smoking.

To buy tickets, go to the AFI website, call (631) 377-6420 or (707) 888-3194, or email Jennifer Desmond.
