Save the date! Decatur Farm to School Dine Out

will be held Tuesday, January 31, 2012 from 5-9 p.m.

Dine out at a select area restaurant on January 31, 2012 and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Decatur Farm to School (DF2S) to sustain its mission of integrating fresh, whole, locally produced foods into the City of Decatur school community’s classrooms and cafeterias.  Participating restaurants include Brick Store Pub, Iberian Pig, Cakes & Ale, The Yogurt Tap, Leon’s, Universal Joint, Steinbeck’s, Farmburger, McGowan’s and more. Funds raised will go toward supporting teacher workshops, kitchen training for CoD school cafeteria partners, classroom and garden projects, and student taste tests. Spread the word and be sure to take family, neighbors, and friends out for a nice evening to celebrate a great cause, support local businesses, and enjoy delicious food. DF2S is a branch of the Oakhurst Garden Community Project.
