Video: Virginia Harvest Celebration

The Virginia Harvest Celebration dinner at D2 showcased the late-summer harvest in Southwest Virginia with fresh seasonal vegetables and locally raised beef, pork, and lamb sourced from the Dining Services Garden at Kentland Farm, other Virginia farms, or sustainable food operations. The meal gave students the opportunity to experience a night of local dining inspired by Virginia Tech's Common Book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver.

While locally sourced items are increasingly available in the campus dining centers, this was the first all-local/sustainable meal available at D2 — a significant undertaking for the all-you-care-to-eat dining center, as more than 2,000 guests attended the meal.
