Local Harvest dinners provide an opportunity to showcase Buy Fresh Buy Local partners with unique, delicious, celebratory events emphasizing local producers. Each Local Harvest event is a fundraiser for REAP's Buy Fresh Buy Local program and allows participants to interact directly with their chefs and some of the producers behind their tasty meal. Buy Fresh Buy Local chefs love hosting Local Harvest dinners because it gives them an opportunity to be creative and to work closely with REAP staff to source new local ingredients.
Chefs are lining up with ideas for future dinners and REAP is excited to bring you more opportunities to celebrate local food and local farmers. Local Harvest event details will be posted approximately one month before the event. Follow REAP on Facebook, Buy Fresh Buy Local on Facebook or Twitter, or sign up to receive our email newlsetter to get latest news on Local Harvest and other events.
Past Local Harvest events have been hosted by a variety of local restaurants and chefs in a wide variety of locations. Here's a peek at some of our recent Local Harvest events:
