“We [Colorado Chefs] want to show support for students at every level, from elementary through post-secondary. In addition to chef/food supplier pairings, DCSD school gardeners will showcase grilled veggies prepared by yours truly,” said Morse.
DCSD ProStart students and ACF Apprentices will also assist at the Feast.
Feast in the Field sponsors include: The Colorado Beef Council, The Colorado Department of Agriculture, Walmart, Whole Kids Foundation, FreshPoint, Moore Brothers/Rock River Ranches, Mulay’s Sausage, Polidori Sausage, Red Bird Farms, Robinson Dairy, Speedy Foods, Sysco Denver and Western Dairy.
The event will benefit ProStart student and CCA Apprentice scholarship funds.  In addition, DCSD Nutrition Services hopes to add Harvest [salad] Bars to DCSD middle schools through Feast in the Field proceeds.
“FEAST Tickets go on sale August 1.  We’re expecting a sell-out event.  It’s an entire afternoon feasting on culinary masterpieces in a beautiful setting—all to benefit students,” said Morse, “What could be better?”
