Event Description

"The shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture.” 
― Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto



Food means the world to us, and we'd love to share a meal with you. Please join us for an evening of music, food, drinks, and friends at the Farmer's Fork Dinner Series.


This dinner will be a fundraiser for 412 Food Rescue and their awesome work in the Pittsburgh region. Their goal is to connect food that would otherwise end up in a dumpster with those in need. Best part about this meal: it will be primarily made out of RESCUED food! 


Arrive around 6pm to enjoy a cocktail by Wigle, live local music, an appetizer, and the chance to explore the Ferderber's organic farm. Dinner will be served by Leah Lizarando of The Brazen Kitchen at 7:15pm (listen for the farm bell) in the 125 year old barn. Complimentary local beer (brewery TBA) and wine by Narcisi will be paired with the meal. There will be a silent auction, door prizes, and other fun surprises during the dinner to raise funds for 412 Food Rescue's mission. Stay for dessert and coffee before your drive home, or take the short drive to Saxonburg for charming overnight accommodations at the historical Mainstay or Hotel Saxonburg


412 Food Rescue's meal will be vegan and made from local and regional RESCUED ingredients. Because these meals are prix fixe and based on seasonal availability, we unfortunately cannot change the menus to reflect all dietary restrictions. Feel free to contact terra@frankferd.com with inquiries as to whether or not a chef can accommodate a specific need.
