Fleming Moveable Feast: 100 mile dinner and auction in support of student learning

Moveable Feast logoFleming College’s Frost Campus will host a celebration of local food in support of student learning and the community.

Fleming’s Moveable Feast, a unique 100-mile dining experience, will take place at the campus, 200 Albert St. S. in Lindsay, on Saturday, October 1. Sponsors of the event include My Kawartha.

The dinner will feature locally-sourced ingredients prepared by Chef Marty Vanden Anker of Aramark, and students will be on-hand at the event to provide demonstrations showcasing programs at the campus. A silent and live auction will take place featuring an array of items including: a framed Robert Bateman print; $2,000 in advertising with My Kawartha; two adult one-year memberships to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM); a one-year family membership to the Canadian Canoe Museum; and four hand-painted tables.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the United Way of City of Kawartha Lakes as well as the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences.

“At Frost Campus we strive to be a contributing member of the community. Hosting an event such as this brings individuals together to experience a delicious, sustainable meal and allows us to share the many wonderful things happening here at the campus,” said Linda Skilton, Dean of the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences and Principal of the Frost Campus. “At the same time, raising funds for the local United Way – which provides invaluable programming for citizens of all ages – is a great way for us to give back to the people of the City of Kawartha Lakes.”

Tickets are $35 and the feast will take place from 5 to 8:30 p.m. For more information or tickets, visit flemingmoveablefeast.eventbrite.ca or call 1-866-353-6464 ext. 3028.
