The 10th annual Eat Local Challenge hosted by Hamilton food service provider Bon Appetit on Sept. 23 featured a complete array of fresh, delicious foods that came from within a 150-mile radius of Clinton. Hamilton community members feasted on lunch outside McEwen under bright sunny skies.

The lunchtime menu included baby greens and radicchio salad, squash, green beans and potatoes, roast chicken, barbecue beef brisket, berry crumble, apple yogurt parfait and fresh apple cider.

Local providers were Wallings Maple Syrup, Burlington Flats; Salvere Farm, Marietta; Sawmill Creek Vineyards, Hector; Murray's Chicken Farm, South Fallsburg; Windy Ridge Organic Farm, Clyde; Reeves Farm, Baldwinsville; Tassleberry Farm, Westmoreland; Kriemheld Dairy, Hamilton; Evans Creamery, Norwich; Common Thread Farm, Madison; Fingerlakes Fresh, Ithaca; and North Star Orchards, Westmoreland.

The $400 million campaign marked the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the College's history.
