Jones Valley Teaching Farm believes in the power of food, which is evident if you’ve ever been to our popular Twilight Supper fundraiser on the downtown farm. Due to the high demand for tickets and our commitment to connecting that magical night to more guests throughout our community, we are excited to announce the launch of our Twilight Supper Series presented by PNC Bank. Modeled after our annual fundraiser, we will host seasonal dinners featuring award-winning chefs in unique locations in and around Birmingham. Proceeds will benefit our food-based education model, Good School Food, in Birmingham City Schools.
Founded by Jones Valley Teaching Farm board member Chef Frank Stitt, and supported by award-winning chefs over the years, our Twilight Supper has contributed significantly to Jones Valley Teaching Farm’s overall growth and has fueled the expansion of Good School Food from one to seven Birmingham City Schools - including over a million dollars in Teaching Farm infrastructure on school campuses.
Our next Twilight Supper Series dinner will be on Thursday, February 21 at 6 pm and will feature award-winning Chef Frank Stitt of Highlands Bar and Grill, Bottega Restaurant, Bottega Cafe, and Chez Fon Fon. Join us at Bottega for an unforgettable evening with cocktails, music, and a few surprises. Tickets are on sale now, but will sell out fast!
Jones Valley Teaching Farm uses the power of growing food to transform and improve a young person’s pre-K-12 educational experience. We build vibrant, student-centered Teaching Farms on school campuses to provide an environment where young people can learn, create, explore, and grow a healthy future for themselves and their community.
