October 6th Taste of the Farm Dinner!
Santa Clara Schools Foundation Fundraiser
The Santa Clara Unified School District operates an organic farm that provides fresh produce to our cafeterias and provides incredible, hands-on opportunities for our students to learn more about biology, chemistry, environmental science, economics, mathematics, literature, and art. It’s an amazing resource, and we’re so grateful for your support of the farm over the years!
Appetizers and the farm tour are from 530pm to 615pm and dinner is 615pm to 8pm on Thursday, October 6th at the SCUSD Farm, 1055 Dunford Way, Sunnyvale, CA 94087.

Who can I contact with questions about my order such as dietary restrictions?
I loved my meal so much that I want the recipes!
Glad to hear it! Let us know and we'll see what we can do.
Will I be able to take home farm produce after the event?
Yes! We will be providing small boxes of produce to take home after the event. Contents will depend on what's in season/available.
What should I wear?
Farmer chic? Organic classy? Plaid flannel is always a safe bet; nobody has worn overalls yet, but that wouldn't be inappropriate. And who among us isn't always looking for a place to wear their boots?! You'll be walking around in dirt and tanbark, so dress comfortably. Actually, some of the best outfits I've seen have incorporated fruits and veggies -- one attendee wore her corn earrings one year! High heels and nice shoes are not recommended, as they can get dirty easily.
I want to come, but I don't like eggplant or salmon. Can anything be done?
Email [email protected] and let's talk. We might be able to come up with an alternative meal for you.
