In the words of Molly Walbrun, the photographer of the 100 Mile meal:
“The terroir of this region, you can taste it in this food. Our sunlight, our rain, the way the weather patterns trace across the land. It’s about connection: to the area in which we live, to the food we grow, and to those who grow it. The 100-mile-meal uplifts and celebrates this food.”

Due to the generosity of the chefs, this is a fundraiser for the Driftless Folk School.
