Grow Dat Youth Farm is partnering with the Link Stryjewski Foundation for a benefit dinner on May 7.

The event, which takes place on the farm’s grounds at 150 Zachary Taylor Drive in New Orleans City Park, features a dinner highlighting produce grown by youth members and volunteers on the seven-acre farm.

Following a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres, guests will get a tour of the farm followed by a three-course meal cooked by chefs Stephen Stryjewski of Cochon and Cochon Butcher and Ryan Prewitt of Peche. The menu has not been finalized, organizers say, but will feature grilled pork and summer salads made with produce from the farm, including cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, Thai basil and herbs. The dinner includes wine pairings.

“I’m as passionate about food as these kids are, so I am excited about using the food they have grown,” Stryjewski said in a prepared statement. “You can see the sense of pride they have garnered from this work, and it has a significant impact on more than just their own lives, but the community as a whole. It’s amazing what food can do.”

Proceeds of the dinner benefit the nonprofit, which nurtures local youth while teaching them leadership skills and educating them about sustainable food systems and how to grow food.

The event runs from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $95 and can be purchased here.
