We support local farmers as much as possible...the major produce items purchased locally and in season are apples, potatoes, green peppers, summer squash, zucchini, butternut squash, tomatoes, and corn.

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.
