Fantastic Fowl Food Finale concludes Tour de Cluck events

From page A9 | May 17, 2013 |

A month of activities celebrating the Tour de Cluck, a bicycle tour of backyard chicken coops in Davis, will wrap up with the Fantastic Fowl Food Finale from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 1, at Sutter Davis Hospital.

The event is a benefit for the Yolo Farm to Fork Foundation, one of the two major beneficiaries of the Tour de Cluck events taking place throughout May. (The other beneficiary is the Davis Art Center.)

The meal is a combined effort of the hospital chef, using locally grown produce, and Davis restaurant Caffé Italia. Rich Collins of California Endive Farms and a past foundation board member will create endive appetizers and salads with the Sutter chef and her staff. Caffé Italia will be on site with its “Pizza with a Purpose” wood-fired oven to provide “fowl” and vegetarian pizzas garnished with endive. Additional produce from Sutter’s Farmers Market will add to the food offerings. Yolo County wines will be featured.

Officers from Davis High School’s Future Farmers of America chapter, led by Ellie Michel, will serve guests.

The new food finale will help celebrate 10 years of successful Davis Farm to School programs with partners and businesses (continuing now under the Yolo Farm to Fork Foundation banner). The garden, nutrition and waste management programs are expanding to the rest of the schools in Yolo County with the support of county Agriculture Commissioner John Young.

Tickets are $35 per person, available at the south end of the Davis Farmers Market in Central Park, Fourth and C streets, and online at www.brownpapertickets.com. Proceeds will help with expanding the work of farm to school programs in the county. The dress for the event is dressy casual.

Every purchaser of a meal ticket also gets a free raffle ticket.

For more information and tickets, visit the Tour de Cluck website, www.tourdecluck.org, or call organizer Dorothy Peterson at 530-753-2647.
