GFON Spotlight: Columbus Food Oasis

The UP Factory in Columbus, GA was the venue for a first of its kind farm-to-table dinner last month, a celebration of local food and the local farmers who grow and provide it for the Columbus community. The event was organized by CFO steering committe member Abieka Alexander, a grower and educator whose Project 3 initiative aims to provide agricultural education and experiences to communities in the River Valley region. Guests enjoyed a five-course meal made with fresh, local ingredients and prepared by local chefs, and had an opportunity to meet and mingle with growers and other like-minds who appreciate and champion sustainable, local food systems. See photos of this unforgettable night below, and stay tuned for more farm-to-table events in the future!
