The Farm to Table Community Dinner is sponsored by the TCAC, as well as the Summerville, Don Pedro and Sonora FFAs (Future Farmers of America).

Students from the FFA programs will present a presentation during the dinner and will make themselves available to answer questions and provide information.
Established in 2017, the Tuolumne County Agriculture Collaboration (TCAC) is a licensed 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization created to assist the Future Farmers of America (FFA) students of Summerville, Sonora, and Don Pedro high schools and local 4H clubs to pursue educational and leadership opportunities in agriculture.
TCAC consists of parents, community members, and local agriculture teachers who understand the importance of community collaboration and the benefit that local agriculture programs can provide to Tuolumne County. TCAC aims to raise funds for all agriculture education programs and to further strengthen the relationships between students, local ranchers and farmers. TCAC raises capital through a variety of local fundraising events and aims to ensure that local students in agriculture get recognized for their efforts and hard work.
