Lunch

Gladfelter Student Center features two dining halls that will be available to workshop participants for lunch:

  • The cafeteria on the main floor offers a wide selection of vegetarian and meat entrees, fresh-made salads and dressings, homemade soups, and desserts.
  • The Cowpie Café, located on the lower level, offers ONLY vegan and vegetarian options.

Both facilities source their food from the college garden and farm and offer gluten-free and diary-free options. All attendees are encouraged to network, exchange knowledge, and eat together on the third floor of Gladfelter where each of the Harvest Conference instructors will have a booth set up to sell their goods. Feel free to bring your own lunch or dine off campus at a local restaurant.
