September in Sacramento is one of our favorite times of the year, and it’s not just because the weather is FINALLY cooling down . . . it’s because it’s Farm to Fork Month! We’re preparing (emotionally, mentally, physically) for a month of non-stop foodie fun and we can’t wait to see what Farm to Fork Month has in store for us.
One of the events we’re most excited for is the upcoming The Village Feast, a communal meal held outside at Central Park in Downtown Davis from 1:00pm – 4:00pm, September 29. The Village Feast will bring up to 350 people together for a meal highlighting local farmers and the bounty of the Sacramento region.
How does it work? You bring your own table settings (picnic baskets, plates, silverware, glasses and napkins) and sit down for a family-style meal of passed platters and local wines. This year’s menu includes heirloom tomatoes, grilled leg of lamb, local vegetables and a pear galette. For a full menu and wine list, take a look here!
This seasonal soiree benefits the Sacramento chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier and Davis Farm to School, two charitable organizations who work in support of education in food and agriculture. The Dames provide scholarships to women pursuing careers in food, wine and agriculture, and Davis Farm to School provides garden grants, field trips and support for local fresh food in schools.
At The Village Feast you get a fantastic local meal in a beautiful place and it goes towards a great cause. Is there a better way to celebrate Farm to Fork Month?
