1953 Commons will be hosting farmers, food producers and orchardists as part of the annual harvest dinner. Join us on Thursday to meet the people in the Upper Valley and beyond who produce much of our food.

The menu for the evening features many local and regional ingredients and some of our favorite fall recipes, including stuffed portabellos made with Vermont Butter & Cheese Co chèvre (Websterville, VT), grilled apple-glazed pork loin, featuring PT Farms Pork (North Haverhill, NH) and baked apples a la mode featuring apples from Walhowdon Farms (Lebanon, NH).


food day

Food Day is a national initiative to encourage everyone to think about what they eat and how it impacts the world around us, from local farmers and hungry neighbors to the nation as a whole.  DDS is sponsoring various Food Day events across campus, including welcoming award winning author and blogger Barry Estabrook who will be discussing food politics in the Paganucci Lounge at 4 PM on Wednesday, October 22nd. 

Community food activist Mark Winne will be speaking about the challenges of food production in the 21st Century at 4 PM on Monday, October 20th in Dartmouth 101.

Find out more about Food Day and what is happening at Dartmouth here.

DDS features many regional products as part of our regular menus, but we are going all out in celebration of food week.  In addition to the regional harvest dinner in '53 Commons, Collis Cafe will be serving specials all week that feature ingredients from over 2 dozen regional producers. With apples being a staple of regional food production, you can find regional apples at every DDS location. (We should point out that NH law defines local food as coming from within the state of New Hampshire.  Many of the products we feature as regional often come from just over the state line.)

CYC Ice Cream Bar

Courtyard Cafe in the Hop will be serving up ice cream sundaes on Wednesday from 6 pm to 8 pm.
