Inspired by their vision for the future of school food and armed with the budget of the current National School Lunch Program (and a stack of cafeteria trays), top Arizona chefs invite you to join them for a one-of-a-kind dinner to create awareness about the current state of food in schools.

On Sunday, Chef Charleen Badman of FnB will help a group of Valley chefs to create a one-of-a-kind dinner at The Farm at South Mountain. Expect inventive new takes on childhood favorites like a Three Sisters Taco Salad from Charleen and Sacha Levine of Ocotillo, a Garlic Hummus Pizza from Hummus Xpress chef Eddie Hantas and a reimagination of Sloppy Joes that you have to taste to believe.

Tickets are $79 and include food and two beverage tickets. Event proceeds will support Blue Watermelon's efforts to help all students grow up to be healthy, while gaining knowledge and the freedom to be nourished and poised for academic and social success. Seats are limited, so purchase yours today online.

More events to be added, all in celebration of National Farm to School Month. All information can be found at http://www.slowfoodphoenix.org/events/.
