Hey, y’all! It’s once again Local Foods Week, when Dining Services celebrates all things local to Rochester.
We’ve already held an Earth Day lunch on Tuesday (complete with potato gnocchi and tofu with bok choy and rice), and tonight was the local beer pairing dinner in the Meliora. Despite not being able to enjoy the local beer, us under-21’ers still got a four course dinner full of local foods, and the marvelous evening entertainment provided by No Jackets Required; no wonder the event was sold out.
Don’t worry if you couldn’t make it tonight, though, there’s still time to get involved with LFW! Tomorrow you can sample coffee in Connections 11-2, and enjoy the “Celebrate Rochester” in Douglass 5-8 PM. On Friday, Danforth will be serving a local brunch, and you can take a break from the Dandelion Day festivities to stop by Douglass, which will be serving your favorite street foods all day.
Wondering where all this food is coming from? Wonder no more, for Danny has put together a guide for the week. Check out the vendors below, who make LFW possible.
As always, if you have any questions (or suggestions for something you think should be a part of next year’s Local Foods’ Week) then let us know! In the meantime, grab something delicious and local.
