Mello FarmstandCorn shuckoff

Brown was one of the first institutions to really catch on to the local and sustainable food movements and Dining worked very hard in the first years of Community Harvest to help grow a knowledge base of what the food system looks like and what Brown, as well as its students, could do to be actively involved with "counter" movements.

-- Jennifer Baumstein, Farm Fresh RI, Brown alumna, former Community Harvest Intern

Brown Dining is committed to educating about our food, farmers and fields. Through education we are able to connect our student customers as well as faculty and staff to local agriculture. Awareness, education, connection and FUN are the goals of these types of events.
  • Educational Events
  • Listed below are the many ways in which we reach our students:
    • The Farmers’ Market on Wriston quad
    • Brown Dining chef at market demo
    • Local Dinners: fall harvest emphasis and spring emphasis around Earth Day
    • Corn shuck-off. The corn shucking contest is an event in which students compete to shuck the most local corn. The shucked corn is then served at the local dinner.
