Plate is helping to ensure that Columbia

years to come.
With the goal of shepherding talent in

funded through a percentage of each
ticket sold from Farm to Table events,
as well as through online donations.
Vanessa Bialobreski, managing partner

of Farm to Table Event and Catering
Company, explains:
"Founders Kristian Niemi, Eric McClam
and I wanted to create a non-profit that
aligned with what we feel passionate
about on a day-to-day basis. We want
to be able to give back to our local food
community, including farmers, chefs, and
food advocates."
Supporting up-and-coming talent in the
culinary world, grants are awarded to
recipients with the goal of bettering the
mission of "good food" in the Midlands.
