Farm to Table Dinners - new chefs & restaurants come to the table!

To help Slow Food Indy's Terra Madre delegates with the cost of travel to Italy, SFI is grateful to partner with Hoosier restaurants and producers for a series of Farm to Table dinners this summer. By raising enough money for 14 round-trip tickets to Italy, these Indiana producers, chefs, and educators will have the chance to learn about sustainable food practices with others from across the globe. They'll return to the Hoosier state with the experiences and ideas to make Indiana's local food culture stronger and better. Hope to see you at the table!
