11th annual Local Foods Dinner set for August 29
Event Management, Dining, and Hospitality will host the 11th annual Local Foods Dinner from 4:30–8 p.m. Wednesday, August 29, at the Marketplace at Linkins Dining Center at Illinois State University. Students, faculty, and staff alike can enjoy dinner made with local produce from the community.
Guests can look forward to dishes such as lemon and honey grilled chicken, Moroccan-inspired stuffed peppers, fresh corn on the cob, apple and maple dessert pizza, apple cider, and more! The night’s dinner is made possible by collaboration between the chefs at Linkins and local vendors.
According to Executive Chef Matthew Horton, this event spotlights farm-fresh food: “The purpose of the Local Foods Dinner is to present many of the locally grown products available in our area.” He hopes the event “helps to celebrate the local food economy, as well as showcase how talented our culinary team is at creating new concepts with unique flavors.”
Door-rate prices for dinner will be $10 for students, faculty, and staff. Meal plans will still be in effect and can be used for this event. Any allergy restrictions can be accommodated if necessary.
Those with questions regarding the event, should contact Horton at (309) 438-2042 or EMDH@IllinoisState.edu. Students, faculty, and staff can also check for more information on Event Management, Dining, and Hospitality’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds.
