Farm-To-Table Breakfast Madison, February 9th!

Get out of the cold and into the kitchen!

Need something to do next weekend here in Madison? I hope to see you at the downtown indoor Dane County Farmer's Market! Join students from Madison's middle and high schools and Chefs Lisa Jacobson of Mermaid Cafe and Tory Miller of L'Etoile and Graze as they help create an amazing local breakfast! As a former educator, I am thrilled to see kids giving back to their community and having the chance to work with two amazing chefs to creating some ultra-delicious-local-eats! See you there!

REAP Food Group Announces  
Special Farm-to-Table Breakfast to Support REAP Food Group's
Chef in the Classroom Program 
Saturday, February 9th, at the Dane County Farmer Market
Madison Senior Center, 330 W. Mifflin St., Madison, WI

Join REAP Food Group on Saturday, February 9th at the Dane County Farmers' Market for a delicious breakfast prepared by local chefs, featuring products grown and produced by the familiar faces of DCFM market vendors -- ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE BREAKFAST SUPPORT REAP'S CHEF IN THE CLASSROOM PROGRAM!

Local Chefs Tory Miller of L'Etoile and Graze and Lisa Jacobson of Mermaid Café will lead a team of students from Sherman Middle and East High Schools in preparing a mouth-watering breakfast using ingredients sourced mainly from the adjoining market. This event not only showcases delicious seasonal ingredients and each chef's different, influential styles, but is a platform for students to implement the valuable skills they have learned while participating in REAP's Chef in the Classroom program. It truly is the students' time to shine!

Started in 2006, Chef in the Classroom works to teaches youth how to cultivate the tools of healthy eating through increased hands-on participation in scratch cooking, develop students familiarity with, and an appetite for, fresh local foods, and instill well-rounded knowledge of the local food system. This breakfast is the community's opportunity to see all of these lessons come together as the students work to prep, cook and serve up local fare. It is also our opportunity to say THANK YOU to the dedicated chefs that volunteer with the students year-round, helping mold them into positive, impactful members of our local food system.

The breakfast begins at 8:30am and runs until approximately
11am (or when the food runs out). Come early and hungry!
No reservations accepted.
Tickets sold at the door on a first come first served basis.  

Cost: $12.50 for a plateful of local food.
(Small portion available for $8.50).
