Tickets are now on sale for the 13th annual Long Beach Urban Farm Dinner on Sunday, Oct. 1.

The roughly five-hour-long event will include a multi-course meal featuring over 20 local chefs, music and beverage tastings. Ticket proceeds will benefit local nonprofit Long Beach Fresh, which hosts community events, consults with local businesses, works on food policy and more.

A single ticket is priced at $175, but larger donations are also welcome, and seating it limited.

Primal Alchemy, a chef-driven catering company founded on farm-to-table cuisine, hosts the dinner each year.

“We want to promote local, seasonal, healthy eating,” Primal Alchemy co-owner Dana Buchanan said. “That’s what the event is all about.”

Each year, an organization with like-minded goals is chosen to benefit from the fundraiser. Last year, Long Beach City College’s culinary program was chosen. This year, Long Beach Fresh was the recipient.

Buchanan and her partner, Chef Paul Buchanan, have known Long Beach Fresh co-directors Tony Damico and Ryan Smolar for years through various projects promoting local food health and fitness.

Recently, Long Beach Fresh began collaborating with the Long Beach Health Department to connect urban farms, a farmers market and corner shops in food-insecure areas.

The long list of chefs invited to be part of the dinner include chef Chad Phuong of Battambong BBQ, chef Jason Witzl of Ellie’s and Ginger’s, chef Shea Enriquez of Alder and Sage, Arturo Enciso and Ana Belén Salatino of Gusto Bread and more.

This year’s event will be held at River Trail Ranch, previously the dinner had been held at The Growing Experience, an urban farm now run by the Maye Center.

Events can be purchased here.

The dinner will be located at 6751 Atlantic Ave.
