UNC Asheville to Host Farm-to-Table Dinner on the Quad on Sept. 28th

Warning: Information you find on this page may be outdated or incorrect.

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 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 reflects the southern Jewish experience and foodways. Food served at the dinner will be sourced locally and grown sustainably.
