Volunteer Opportunities for the Farm to Table Dinner

The June 7 date for the 4th annual Farm to Table dinner is rapidly approaching, which means the committee needs volunteers the day of the dinner to help make this happen. If adults or teens missed the opportunity to purchase tickets for the seating, this is a very unique way to participate both behind the scenes and amidst the attendees.

Why volunteer? Meet chefs and students from The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Dallas and Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. (The actual cooking will be done at the school.) Observe chefs professionally plating the six courses. Be a part of the long line of more than 50 servers wowing the diners as each course is presented tableside. Support this annual fundraiser for the Coppell Farmers Market.

The dinner showcases the Coppell Farmers Market farmers’ and producers’ freshest ingredients in a one-of-a-kind culinary experience. One hundred dinner guests will start with appetizers in Grapevine Springs Park and then move to a seated dinner at long, linen covered tables on the grounds between the park and Coppell Senior and Community Center at 345 W. Bethel Road. For more information, click here.
