Trine University’s Art Eberhardt Environmental and Community Outreach Center (ECO Center) is excited to assist with the third annual Farm to Fork Dinner hosted by the Fresh Food Hub in Auburn, IN. The Farm to Fork Dinner is an event dedicated to the celebration of the local farmers and community. All food that is to be served has been grown locally for the community to enjoy.

The Farm to Fork Dinner will take place on Saturday, September 23 from 6:00 P.M to 9:00 P.M. The dinner will be located at the Dekalb County Fair Grounds Horse Pavilion in Auburn, Indiana, at 708 S Union Street, Auburn, Indiana. Tickets for the Farm to Fork dinner are now on sale for $35 at Event Bite.

Along with a locally produced dinner, there will also be live music, a raffle, and a farmer’s market. It is expected to be the most successful year yet.

The Fresh Food Hub works with local farmers to provide high quality local, organic, and sustainably produced foods at a reasonable cost to the community.

The ECO Center and Food Hub are also looking for volunteers to help with this event. There are two shifts available with 4 positions open in each. First shift spans 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM. This shift consists of assisting with set up and guiding guests as the event begins. The second shift lasts from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM and consists of assisting during dinner along with clean up after the event. Free dinner is included for each volunteer.
