Description

This dinner celebrates farmers of color, who make up only four percent of the total number of American farmers. Systemic and institutional racism has made it challenging or impossible historically for farmers of color to obtain loans, lines of credit and the resources needed to be successful. And yet, these farmers bring the spirit of determination and the push for equity to the table. Farmers and Chefs will engage in conversation with each course to discuss both the challenges and the opportunities ahead.
