Youth Initiative’s 21st Annual Winter Dinner
February 3 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm$50 - $80
Youth Initiative will be hosting a Candlemas dinner on February 3rd at the Rooted Spoon in Viroqua. The tradition started 21 years ago by Jane Siemon, the Nutrition teacher at YIHS.
Originally, Jane held the dinner at the school, but as the popularity of the dinner increased, the location switched to the Rooted Spoon. From the beginning, the focus has been on teaching the students how to source local, organic food donations, and preparing and serving a five- course gourmet meal. The students also provide musical entertainment, and run a silent auction. The majority of the work is accomplished by the students, under the guidance of professionals, like Dani Lind of the Rooted Spoon, and countless parents from YIHS.
The dinner is open to the public, and tickets can be purchased online at yihs.net or by calling the school at 637-6445 ($50-$80 sliding scale). Doors open at 6:00 pm.
