Redifer Local Foods Night To Feature Student-Grown Produce

Last week, Onward State introduced you to the newly organized Student Farm Club at Penn State. This week, you can see — and taste — this club in action.

Tomorrow night, Redifer Dining Commons is hosting a Local Foods Night from 5-7:30 p.m. This meal hits close to home, literally; the ingredients are all sourced from within a 150-mile radius of Penn State. According to the Penn State Student Farm’s website, the meal is set to be a pretty tasty one. For $7.99, Redifer is offering grilled skirt steak, focaccia bread with local cheese, and roasted vegetables.

To finish off the meal, the Student Farm Club (SFC) is providing the lettuce for a heirloom tomato salad with fresh basil. The lettuce was grown on campus in hydroponic greenhouses. “It is truly bringing the food system full circle,” said SFC president Keirstan Kure. “[It] provides a great opportunity for students to learn about and be engaged with the food system.”

The Student Farm Club’s lettuce is the first student-grown produce to be served in a campus dining hall. For more information on the event, contact Sustainable Student Farm Design Coordinator Leslie Pillen here.
