Due to this past weekend’s rainstorm and this week’s forecast for continued rain and storms, we will not be able to host Thursday’s Dinner in the Orchard on the farm at T.S. Smith and Sons. We have determined to continue with the event as scheduled, but to move locations. We will hold Dinner in the Orchard inside at the Food Bank of Delaware’s Milford Branch. The event time will remain 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. 

We hope you are able to join us despite the new location! We still promise great food, great music and a great time, while raising money to support The Culinary School at the Food Bank’s Milford Branch!
