3 Nights, 3 Menus
& 20 Masters
Of Their Craft
The Arcadia Box Social
Celebrating A Decade of Sustainable Food,
Farming & Food Justice
On the occasion of our 10th anniversary, twenty chefs come together on three nights for the Arcadia Box Social, a socially distanced picnic to celebrate Arcadia’s decade of service to our community.
Each night features a different menu and a different slate of masters. These extraordinary chefs reached into their personal histories to bring you the dish that has always brought them comfort -- now, more than ever.
Year after year chefs donate their time, talent and food to Arcadia at our annual Fall Harvest Dinner. This year, the love goes both ways: Your Arcadia Box Social purchase funds both Arcadia and these talented, generous people.
So find yourself a patch of grass, a balcony, or a blanket in front of a fire. Make yourself comfortable. Tune in for a virtual toast with your fellow diners on your picnic night, and dig in.

“I started Arcadia in 2010 to fill gaps and innovate solutions to fix a broken food system. I named it after a mythical paradise in ancient Greece. Ten years on, thousands of devoted volunteers, generous donors, spirited veterans, and enthusiastic customers and families have brought forth a real Arcadia, devoted to more just, more sustainable, more abundant wholesome food, for everyone.”
Arcadia Founder & Chairman
This is the time of year we normally gather around a long table on the farm, elbow to elbow. We serve each other from shared platters of food. We make friends with strangers. Almost every word of that is currently ill-advised. But still, we celebrate. Still, we eat. So let’s do it together.
The pandemic has shown us all that only a few things really matter: Good health. Good food to eat. Warm human connections. Thanks to you, Arcadia has been cultivating all three for 10 years and we look forward to another decade and more, with your support and our gratitude.
