Whew, it's a scorcher out there today! Here's hoping it's not quite as warm during our Farm to Table Dinner which will take place Sunday, July 28 beginning at 5pm (don't worry, we'll move indoors if it's this warm!). Have you reserved your seat(s) yet? This event is a great way to support two organizations in the Grinnell Farmers Market & Local Foods Connection while enjoying a fantastic meal, supporting our local farmers, producers and chefs, and getting to meet and mingle with other community members.
Guests will enjoy an evening dining near the beautiful outdoor atrium of the new Humanities & Social Studies Center on Grinnell College's campus. The evening features a five-course meal that will introduce you to many of the products sold at the Grinnell Farmers Market or produced by Local Foods Connection farmers. Each course is derived and prepared by local chefs and aspiring chefs. Farmers will be dining with guests and engaging guests about their products and sharing more about their operations.
Guests are encouraged to sit with someone they've not yet met in an effort to form relationships and build community. Tickets are limited and going quickly, but you can still reserve yours today at grinnellfarmtotable.com. Hope to see you in a couple weeks as we host a fun event to highlight two local organizations committed to feeding our community.
