Farm to Table at Providence Point Brings Warmth to Your Harvest Celebration

As the crisp air of Autumn brings changing colors to the leaves, the Providence Point Dining team is “Savoring the Season” with a farm-to-table dinner on October 14th at 6 p.m. featuring fresh food from local farms including Jamison Farm in Latrobe, PA, and Logan Family Farms in Irwin, PA.

Featuring local foods is nothing new at Providence Point. According to Cheryl Torre Rastetter, Cura Hospitality general manager of dining services, preparing menu items with homegrown products is a Cura Hospitality gold standard.

In addition to “Savoring the Season”, residents are able to purchase food from the community’s farmer’s markets which features the harvest from more than 30 local farms at Providence Point. The farmer’s market, which was started in the summer, is open to Providence Point residents and staff during summer and fall harvesting months. The farmer’s market makes it convenient if a resident wants to purchase smaller quantities of seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables. Cura chefs also provide recipe ideas!

Enjoy the Savor the Season menu – a wonderful addition to your table’s fall harvest celebration -- Designed and Prepared by Cura Chefs Caleb Hicks and Scott Beattie.
