Annual Farm to Table dinner is July 30


OREGON – Oregon Park District’s Annual Farm to Table Dinner to go is back with curbside pick-up. 

Amazing food by local chefs but delivered to your car door. Plan a dinner date now for Friday, July 30. Reservations are required as a limited number of meals will be prepared.

The Farm to Table Dinner event is a fundraiser for the District’s Youth Scholarship Fund. All proceeds will help local youth in need participate in Park District sports and recreation programs.  Donations to the Scholarship Fund are accepted at any time so if you are on a special diet or out of town for this event, feel free to contact the Park District with a donation or purchase a meal and surprise a friend, neighbor, or relative with a fantastic dinner prepared by local “celebrity chefs.”

We do not want anyone to miss out on this delicious three course meal prepared by chefs from:  Ralfie’s BBQ & Catering, Hector’s Cocina, Northside BarBaQ, Jen’s Artisan Bread, Alfano’s, Hazel’s, The Noble Cakery, O’s Bakery, Lynnie’s Kitchen and Magnolia Sweets & Co.  These amazing chefs from our community all volunteer to make these dishes and many of them donate the ingredients needed that we are not able to source locally.  Most of the ingredients are donated by local growers and are fresh right from the farm, garden, beehive or berry patch. Without our donors, celebrity chefs and the Event Sponsor, Circle G Farms and Feedlots, this event would not be possible.

On the menu this year you will enjoy three courses.

Course one includes Grissini with Italian Herb Compound Butter courtesy of Jen’s Artisan Breads. Italian Salad with Sicilian Dressing courtesy of Alfano’s. Tuscan Bean Salad courtesy of Hazel’s.

Course two is from the range. Italian Grilled Chicken and Italian Meatballs are courtesy of Ralfie’s BBQ & Catering. Tuscan Roasted Potatoes are courtesy of Northside BarBaQ. Pasta Primavera courtesy of Hector’s Cocina.

Course three is for the sweet tooth with our dessert sampler. Enjoy Tiramisum Parfait courtesy of The Noble Cakery. Italian Flag Sugar Cookie courtesy of O’s Bakery. Blueberry Ricotta Crostato courtesy of Lynnie’s Kitchen. Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcake courtesy of Magnolia Sweets & Co.

Dinners can be picked up to take home, or you can plan a picnic in the park, or take your meal to one of the participating businesses in Oregon with outdoor seating.  Each meal will be packaged separately and ready to eat with silverware and napkins.

Meals are $30 each. Deadline to reserve a meal (register) is Thursday, July 15 or until sold out.  Call 815-732-3101 to register or visit to register online. Curbside pick-up will be at Nash Recreation Center between 5 and 6:30 p.m. Choose your pick-up time upon registration.
