Webinar: Farm 2 Table for Group Meals: Event Reality or Foodie Fantasy?

December 12, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


As top chefs return to the kitchen, developing innovative recipes and food presentations with ingredients gathered from small farms or even their own gardens, meeting attendee expectations now encompass farm to table requests. These catering initiatives, rooted in both the foodie culture and in social responsibility place planners in the role of negotiating price to meet their attendee expectations within budget. This session will explore just what farm to table is, and will look at how it can be embraced, given the challenges, to deliver on those attendee expectations.

Learning Outcomes:

  • General Overview of Farm 2 Table from Agricultural Production to Consumption
  • Primary Challenges in the Food Chain that Impact Delivery and Menu Price
  • Practical Solutions for Offering Farm 2 Table Options within your Meeting Budget
