Savor Our Local, Fresh Farm to Fork Dinner

Save the Date: Saturday, September 12, 2020

Dine under the stars at Whimsy Farm for our annual Farm to Fork Dinner in September, a fundraiser celebrating Hunger Action Month. Local chefs donate their talents to create a unique, family-style meal composed of fresh produce, proteins, grains, and dairy items.

At the event, learn about the prevalence of hunger in our communities and how you can make a positive impact to combat hunger. Tickets typically go on sale in June. They include happy hour, dinner, live music, and live and silent auctions.

Dinner

Herb grilled chicken. Vegetable paella. Peaches with ricotta and honey. Whatever our chefs cook up, you can be sure it’ll be fresh, local, and tasty.

Live Music

Chat with your friends and family as you enjoy the sounds of soft, acoustic guitar and great vocals — courtesy of some of Colorado’s fabulous local musicians.

Happy Hour

Sip on a signature cocktail, wine, or a local artisanal beer and munch on charcuterie plates. Don’t forget to explore the silent auction items awaiting your bid!

Enjoy Carefully Crafted Dishes from Guest Chefs

Antonio Laudisio

Antonio Laudisio grew up working in New York’s and Miami’s Italian restaurant scenes. At previous Farm to Fork Dinners, he has brought true Italian flavor with  handcrafted, brick oven pizzas and Hazel Del mushroom polenta. Laudisio has developed his own twist on the Farm-to-Table movement: the chef owns and operates Laudisio Mobile, a fleet of mobile wood-fired ovens that partners with local producers to bring rustic cuisine to the Boulder community.

Listen to Tunes from Local Musicians

Our Farm to Fork Dinner wouldn’t be complete without talented musicians to fill the Colorado air with music. In 2019, our musical guests were Lumen & Longfellow, made up of Colorado transplants Billy Dixon and Vani Sundaram. Dixon and Sundaram treated us to acoustic covers of folk, blues, and funk.

Recently from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the duo met while performing in college A Capella groups. They’ve since satisfied their musical itch by performing at local breweries and jamming with friends in their home studio. Their two biggest fans are their dogs, Lumen and Gustav Longfellow.
