The Arcadia Fall Harvest Dinner 2022



Celebrating 12 Years of Sustainable Food,
Farming & Food Justice

Honorary Chairman Gen. Jim Mattis (Ret., USMC)

The Arcadia Board of Directors


The region's best chefs

invite you to one amazing, multi-course seated dinner to celebrate and raise funds for Arcadia's Veteran Farmer


Join us October 2 as we honor our amazing veterans-turned-farmers and the local chefs and restaurant workers who have worked tirelessly through a historically difficult time to keep us all fed. 

Our chefs will regale us with stories of their favorite staff meals, and the top three songs they like to cook to in the kitchen!

This is our first fully in-person Farm Dinner since 2019. We can't wait to see you and take our seats at the harvest table for a delicious, family-style meal.

All Together Now!

Fall Harvest Dinner 

Honoring Arcadia's Veteran Farmer Program


148 military veterans, active duty service members,

and family members trained since 2016 on land that once belonged to George Washington

“I started Arcadia in 2010 to fill gaps and innovate solutions to fix a broken food system. I named it after a mythical paradise in ancient Greece. Twelve years on, thousands of devoted volunteers, generous donors, spirited veterans, and enthusiastic customers and families have brought forth a real Arcadia, devoted to more just, more sustainable, more abundant wholesome food, for everyone.”

The Farm Dinner is back! 

Nine great chefs are pulling together one incredible meal for 250 of our closest friends. Our volunteers will serve it family style at big long tables set out under the sky. 

All Together Now! 


The pandemic has shown us all that only a few things really matter: Good health. Good food to eat. Warm human connections. Thanks to you, Arcadia has been cultivating all three for 12 years and we look forward to another decade and more, with your support and our gratitude.
