Dig In! This Box Supports Local Farmers

Instead of gathering at City Market this year for this year’s Dig In! Farm-to-Table dinner on Sunday, Sept. 19., join Cultivate KC’s collective dining experience and take home a Dig In! dinner basket in support of Cultivate KC’s ongoing work with our city’s urban farmers and focus on building a more sustainable and equitable local food system.

Enjoy a multi-course meal served family-style made almost entirely from ingredients grown within 50-75 miles of Kansas City, including dessert, bread wine, beer, and signature cocktails while you join an online program with prize drawings and more. Order your basket here.

This locally grown and lovingly prepared meal feeds two people and is made with ingredients grown and produced from hyperlocal small farms, prepared by talent from The Town Co., Local Pig, Waldo Thai, Buck Tui BBQ, The Antler Room & Novel. Each basket also includes compostable plates and flatware, local flowers, a handmade wooden charcuterie board from Urban KC Custom Woodworks, wine from Underdog Wine Co., beer from Stockyards Brewing Co., a jar of local fruit butter from Broadmoor Bistro, a biobag liner with info on drop off sites from KC Can Compost
