A dinner in support of school lunches…

October 12, 2017


McClendon’s Select is proud to be working with the Blue Watermelon Project, a new initiative with Slow Food Phoenix, for a celebration of National Farm to School month.  The Blue Watermelon Project is a grassroots group of chefs, restauranteurs and community food advocates from around the valley who are working with students, parents and schools to assist in rethinking the relationship with schools and food.  Throughout the month of October many of the chefs that we work with are going out into the community both in schools and at farmers’ markets to raise awareness about state of school lunches and to provide education and assistance to schools and parents.

On Sunday, October 22nd the Feeding the Future dinner will be held at The Farm at South Mountain.  The event will feature chefs from across the valley creating School Lunch Inspired Bites and Beverages.  It will be a fun and educational evening under the stars to learn about the current state of school lunches and to see what is possible when talented chefs take guidelines and budget outlined by the National School Lunch and create something truly tasty and worthy of feeding our future.  We are excited to be a sponsor for this endeavor and hope everyone takes a moment to learn about the work of the Blue Watermelon Project and join in support of Slow Food.

Tickets for the dinner are going fast.  To reserve your ticket or for more information about the event, you can go to the link on
