The Savory Meal: Eating well for a whole world

Join the Jefferson Center for a regenerative ranching dining experience on October 22, 2017. It showcases regeneratively produced food and features national speakers who are leaders in the regenerative movement.

We are thrilled and honored to work with Chef Tu David Phu, a 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Rising Star Chef, to create and present The Savory Meal. As a Savory Global Network Hub, we are hosting this event as part of the Savory Global Farm-to-Table event happening at hubs across the world.

The centerpiece of the meal, the regeneratively raised meats, are provided by LeftCoast Grassfed, Stemple Creek, Root Down Farm and True Grass Farms. Through this re-imagined farm-to-table experience, connect with people who are passionate about, and committed to, nourishing their environment and their food.

The proceeds of this event will help us regenerate California’s rangelands.
