You won’t want to delay signing up for this very special community event!
Princeton residents are invited to join students of Princeton University’s Forbes College and Whitman College for the best bargain in town: the second annual “Dîner Inn Blanc” under twinkling lights.
“This dinner is all about community of the table,” said Fran McManus, co-founder and board member of Princeton School Gardens Cooperative. “It gives local producers and local merchants a chance to celebrate our delicious Garden State.”
The dinner is jointly sponsored by Princeton University, Princeton School Gardens Cooperative and Corner House. The main course will be served up from Princeton University’s Dining Services, the bread from Terra Momo Bread Company and ice cream flavored with rosemary from Princeton School gardens — made especially for the dinner by the bent spoon.
Diners are asked to wear white, then mix it up with the 500 students, many far from home — all just waiting to be asked the origin and import of the word “inn” to the college.
Individual tickets are $5, with a maximum of $20 per family, and they will go fast. To order online, go to http://www.cornerhousenj.org/donate/index.html, and click on the Donate link. Pay for admission plus $1 for credit card processing. The location and entry time will be revealed to ticket buyers via e-mail on Wednesday, Oct. 9. In case of rain, attendees will be notified via email on Tuesday, Oct. 8. Community members will be issued a rain check voucher for a $5 lunch in the Frist Campus Center Food Gallery.
Proceeds from the sale of public tickets will be shared by the two non-profits.
Corner House, through prevention, education, and treatment programs, promotes the health and well-being of Princeton area young people and their families, as they confront substance abuse and other emotional issues.
The Princeton School Gardens Cooperative, a 501c3, works toward ensuring that every graduate leaves high school with a good measure of civic awareness, self-reliance and food security: All can grow a salad, read a label, set a table, cook for themselves and nurture their friends and family – and understand that their food choices, in effect, are votes.
