Chefs for Clearwater Coming to the CIA

Chefs for ClearwaterHudson River Sloop Clearwater has partnered with the CIA and leading Hudson Valley chefs for a culinary event to bring awareness to issues surrounding the environment, sustainability, and food ethics. Chefs for Clearwater is a five-course farm-to-table dinner on the New York campus, with its majestic views of the Hudson River, on Sunday, September 25.

"The CIA is proud to support Clearwater's dedication to inspiring and educating the public about the need to protect our planet, starting with our own corner of it here in the Hudson Valley," said President Dr. Tim Ryan. "Our college shares a similar mission. In fact, the CIA's Menus of Change initiative revolves around many of the same principles: environmental security, maintaining sustainable resources, and preparing the next generation of leaders with the skills and knowledge to excel in cooking healthful food, while being socially responsible stewards of the environment. In hosting Chefs for Clearwater at the CIA, our two organizations together can help spread that message."

Founded by legendary folk singer Pete Seeger, Clearwater's mission since 1969 has been to preserve and protect the Hudson River, its watershed, tributaries and related bodies of water. The health of the Hudson watershed impacts not only the region’s farmers, but also the broader farm-to-table movement and local restaurant patrons.
