After two years away, we’re excited to bring back the best dinner of the summer. And what better way to reconnect with everyone than by enjoying a meal together prepared by our local chefs with food grown and raised by our farmers. In recognition of industry-wide restaurant staffing challenges, $25 of each ticket sold goes directly to the restaurant teams making and delivering the farm-fresh food for this fundraising event.
Join us at the Vermont Fresh Network's 24th Annual Forum Dinner! For one special evening, farmers and chefs from all across Vermont gather on the shores of Lake Champlain to prepare a sensational meal for you and fellow food enthusiasts.
The Vermont Fresh Network is a member-based non-profit with a social mission. Not only is this event a way to feature and celebrate some of our members, but this grazing farm-to-table dinner is a fundraiser for the Network — all proceeds go to continuing programming that helps bring more Vermont grown and raised food to the table. Join as a Supporting Member of VFN and receive discounted tickets on this and other events for the next year, details here. Members enter discount code at checkout.
