Farm to Fork events are great ways to meet some of the farmers and other foodies in the tri-county area!
This event is more than just a dinner, but also is a fundraiser for Community Stepping Stones - a local 501(c)3 non-profit thats works with at-risk teens through Community Art programs. CommunitySteppingStones.org
