For more information: www.worldonyourplate.org or 716-741-8815.
Daemen’s Hallmark chef & sous chefs will prepare a locally grown, organic, vegetarian lunch. Produce is donated by our local organic farmers and each year the cafeteria chef & staff comes up with a spectacular lunch! A true culinary delight! This year Hallmark’s Chef Bob will present a workshop and share some of his tips and perhaps recipes. The event will culminate with a closing celebration with music, cider and possibly a glass of wine. A great time to relax with friends, network, or check out vendors & informational tables (get a head start on some holiday shopping!), raffle baskets, seed exchange & door prize.
