Farm to Street Dinner
August 19, 2021
In 2016, the first Farm to Street Dinner was held after a partnership between the three organizations was formed to increase awareness of local food being used in local restaurants and as a way to generate funds for a chosen non-profit that is working with local food in Johnson County. Each year, the revenue from the Farm to Street Dinner is awarded to an area organization that is working to enhance our local food system. Applications are selected based on certain below criteria by a committee of volunteers who organize the event. This application is open to all Iowa City/Johnson County organizations who meet the criteria. The application to be the beneficiary for the funds raised at the 2021 Farm to Street Dinner is now open. Organizations can apply here. –Deadline is May 17th.
This event aims to bring together eaters throughout our diverse and vibrant community to share a table, a story, and a meal. This incredible six-course meal will be prepared by some of Iowa City’s best chefs utilizing local ingredients. Each selected chef will work closely with local producers to prepare one course of the six-course meal. Along with food, one glass of wine is included in the ticket purchase for all guests age 21+ with valid ID. Additionally, all guests age 21+ are welcome to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy with your meal. “Wine Doggy Bags” will be provided, allowing guests to take unfinished bottles of wine home with them.
