Forty guests, five courses, one greenhouse: The Stop’s Food for Change Dinner Series.

The Stop’s Chef Chris Brown presents an intimate dining experience in support of The Stop’s innovative programs that fight hunger, build hope and inspire change.

One Thursday each month, Chef Brown prepares a mouthwatering five-course that’s served in The Stop’s unique 3,000-square-foot greenhouse in the Wychwood Barns. If you’re a budding chef and want to experience life in a professional kitchen, you can also join the kitchen crew and help prepare the feast.

This month’s dinner features dishes by special guest chefs Bertrand Alépée (The Tempered Chef) and Beast’s Scott Vivian.

Meal only $75; with wine pairings $120; kitchen crew $100.
