Join us this holiday season at the lovely Sweetwater Organic Community Farm to enjoy a chef-curated 3-course dinner made from good food that would have otherwise gone to waste and to experience first-hand the "360 Eats" system that is mending the gaps in our broken food system. All of the ingredients will be sourced from excess food rescued by our food rescue team at local food establishments, such as grocery stores, farms and food distributors, and transformed into gourmet meals by our team of professional chefs.
