It can’t get much fresher than eating outside right next to a garden where food is being grown, and that’s exactly what will happen at the Farm to Table Dinner next Wednesday, July 25 at 6:30 p.m.  at  The Jewish Community Center’s outdoor pavilion, 3600 Dutchmans Lane. The JCC garden is maintained by the Jewish Outdoor, Food, and Environmental Education department (JOFEE). Chefs from Mayan Cafe, Flavaville, Naked Hummus, Monnik and other restaurants will prepare source ingredients from local farms and the J’s garden to create two dishes each for the tasting menu as guests enjoy the evening in a party style (rather than sit-down ) evening. Guests will also enjoy farm to table themed cocktails, music from the Juggernaut Jug Band and a silent auction will round out the evening.

Tickets for the event are $75 per person, and proceeds will go to support JOFEE, which provides produce for the JFCS community center, its senior adult lunch and preschool as well as the Gendler Grapevine Fresh STop Market (a sliding scale local produce market that makes fresh vegetables accessible for everybody regardless of income or resources.)
  “JOFEE’s goal is to connect Louisville to the world around it. The environment and the food that we eat are intimately linked,” said Michael Fraade, JOFEE Director. “The Farm to Table dinner will deepen that connection while raising money for us to expand what we are able to do.”
Each participating restaurant or food vendor at the dinner is sourcing at least some ingredients from local farms, including The J’s own garden.”
