Farm to Table Dinner on the Quad
September 28 @ 5:30 pm$28
The Farm to Table Dinner, an annual UNC Asheville fall harvest ritual around food, started in 2015. The dinner celebrates the efforts of our student gardeners, faculty and staff partners, and community collaborators, while advancing our collaborative efforts for a sustainable, local food system. This year’s theme is Nourishing Connections. Special guest Marcie Cohen Ferris, a professor emeritus and author specializing in southern foodways and the southern Jewish experience, will give brief remarks at the dinner that will inspire informal discussions among attendees. With guests all seated at one long table outside on the main quad, the intention is to “nourish connections” among those in attendance.
The dinner will feature live klezmer music, educational outreach tables with community partner organizations, and thoughtful menu planning that reflect the southern Jewish experience and foodways. Food served at the dinner will be sourced locally, grown sustainably, and feature ingredients grown on campus.
Tickets are $28 for general admission, $10 for students. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
Visitors may park in faculty/staff and non-resident lots from 5:00 p.m. until 7:30 a.m., Monday through Friday, and on weekends, holidays, and campus breaks. Visitors are not permitted to park in resident student lots at any time.
