Farm Dinner 10th Anniversary Celebration

Celebrate the Coralville Community Food Pantry's 10th birthday with an exciting farm-to-table fundraiser at the beautiful Walker Homestead.

Since opening our doors in 2009, the food pantry has provided more than 2 million pounds of food to 9,500 Coralville and Tiffin residents. This is only possible because of our generous community.

You can continue to help us build a healthier, stronger, and hunger-free Coralville community by attending our first annual Farm Dinner at the beautiful Walker Homestead.

Don't miss this first class farm-to-table culinary experience led by acclaimed local chef Chris Grebner. Attendees will be treated to a seasonally inspired 5-course dinner, with nearly all of the ingredients produced onsite by farmer Shanti Sellz of Muddy Miss Farms. A complimentary glass of wine crafted onsite at Walker Homestead will be included, with additional drinks available for purchase throughout the night. Live bluegrass music from Marc & Brandi Janssen, fire pits, and unmatched sunset views of the Walker Homestead's vineyard will make this an event to be remembered.

Early bird tickets are $90/person until October 1, when the price will go up to $100/person.

For every ticket sold, the food pantry is able to provide food for a family of four for 3 months.
