CROP Foundation Hosts 'Discover the South'


Mark your calendars for a food feast that will leave you sated and also help up-and-coming culinary students. The Oct. 1 event, “Discover the South,” will feature Dixie cocktails and cuisine prepared by chef Dwain Kalup of Domaine Hudson and chef Andy Feeley of Eden along with high-school culinary students.

Proceeds will benefit The CROP Foundation, a nonprofit created by Kip Poole, William Penn High School’s culinary arts instructor. The program allows his students to work with area top chefs at “pop-up” themed dining events and raises money for a scholarship fund that helps students continue their education at culinary schools or college.

The harvest dinner will be held from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at the Historic Penn Farm, 807 Frenchtown Road, New Castle. Attire is business casual. For tickets, visit www.thecrop.org/events.html.
