Education

Mello FarmstandCorn shuckoff

In 2004 our farmers knew they had to do something to improve their lot and established Rhody Fresh. Brown Dining was one of our earliest supporters and their leadership has been an example to many other colleges and universities, including Roger Williams, RISD, PC and Salve Regina.

-- Jim Hines, Executive Director, RI Dairy Farms Cooperative

Brown Dining is committed to educating about our food, farmers and fields. Through education we are able to connect our student customers as well as faculty and staff to local agriculture. Awareness, education, connection and FUN are the goals of these types of events.
  • Educational Events
  • Listed below are the many ways in which we reach our students:
    • The Farmers’ Market on Wriston quad
    • Brown Dining chef at market demo
    • Local Dinners: fall harvest emphasis and spring emphasis around Earth Day
    • Corn shuck-off. The corn shucking contest is an event in which students compete to shuck the most local corn. The shucked corn is then served at the local dinner.
